Arsene Needs To Beat Rivals To The £6M Argentinian To Replace Nasri

Arsenal could be set to reignite their interest in Argentine midfielder Lucas Biglia in the hope of bolstering their midfield.

Arsene Wenger was linked with a £6m bid during the summer as he sought to rejuvenate his midfield following the departures of Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas, but the deal never materialised.

Now with the Gunners season wavering, the possibility of the deal going through in January has now re-opened.

The Anderlecht midfielder recently made his debut for the full Argentina side and is now keen to ply his trade outside of Belgium.

He told Belgian newspaper, Het Nieusblad: “I think I have ended my cycle at Anderlecht and I want to do something new. Sometimes I feel I have to do more because I am playing in Belgium. I am aware that it would be easier if I was playing in a different league.”

Biglia could well fit into Wenger’s new look midfield as a ball-playing, tough-tackling player he is after and his £6m price tag would not break the bank either.

There have already been suggestions of Liverpool and Tottenham showing interest in Biglia, but whether any of this will come to fruition, only time will tell.

It was reported that Kenny Dalglish was looking to replace Lucas with Biglia in the summer, but as Lucas stayed at Anfield his interested has probably cooled.
