Arsenal's midfield target Lucas 'wants to try something new'

Published Add your comment

Highly rated Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia is attracting interest from Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur according to the London Metro.

The 25-year-old recently encouraged offers from all Barclays Premier League suitors after admitting he felt he had achieved all he could in Belgium and revealed he is in search of a new challenge.

"I think I have ended my cycle at Anderlecht and I want to do something new," Biglia told Het Nieuwsblad.

"The board know what I want to do. I know that playing for the Argentina national side means I get plenty of exposure and opens lots of doors.

"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."


Arsene Wenger has deployed Gunners scouts to run the rule over Biglia over a proposed move to the Emirates Stadium this summer, as speculation continues to mount over the future of Cesc Fabregas - who looks increasingly likely to be plying his trade away from north London next season.

Wenger, known for his frugal approach in the transfer market is planning to open bidding at £6million, but will be conscious of rival bids from either Liverpool or Spurs.

Kenny Dalglish has already recruited well in terms of adding to the Reds' midfield ranks with the acquisition of Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing who all completed moves to Anfield this summer, so it is unlikely Liverpool will rival the Gunners for Biglia's signature.

Spurs boss Harry Redknapp on the otherhand is yet to make any major waves in the transfer market, bar a couple of promising youngsters, and he is still set on strengthening his White Hart Lane squad in order to keep pace with the big-spenders in 2011-12.

Tottenham have been frequently linked with Scott Parker, having made an unsuccessful bid in January, it is heavily anticipated that Spurs will renew their interest in the England international following West Ham's relegation to the Npower Championship.
