Gunners continue Argentine international pursuit - wants 'something new'

Published Add your comment

Arsenal midfield target Lucas Biglia is looking for a move away from Anderlecht.

The 25-year-old was linked with a move to the Emirates in the summer transfer window, with Gunners chief scout Steve Rowley reported impressed by the player when making a personal check.

Arsene Wenger failed to secure the services of the former Independiente star, but have been handed a fresh opportunity with the player's omission of desire to leave Belgium.

"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."

Arsenal have made a dreadful start to the Barclays Premier League, their worst in over 50 years, leading to speculation that Wenger will be busy in the transfer market once again come the New Year.


Injuries have exposed the position as an area of fragility in north London, with Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby both out of action for mixed periods of time for Arsenal.

Mikel Arteta and Yossi Benayoun were both drafted in on deadline day at the Emirates, and Biglia could swell the ranks at Arsenal further in a £6 million January deal.
