Agent confirms Arsenal interest in Liverpool midfielder target

Published Add your comment

Reported Liverpool target Lucas Biglia is being pursued by Arsenal, according to the agent of the Anderlecht midfielder.

The 25-year-old Argentine is also on the radar of Fiorentina and AC Milan, with the former making a concerted effort to seal a January deal for his signature.

Liverpool have been frequently linked with Biglia in recent months, and injury to Lucas Leiva has led to renewed speculation that he could move to Anfield.

However, Arsene Wenger appears to have stolen a march on Liverpool counterpart Kenny Dalglish, and Enzo Montepaone has confirmed the Gunners are keen on his client.

"I know that Fiorentina officials went to Belgium to have a look at him and that they spoke to Anderlecht about trying to sign him in January," Montepaone told

"Interest from AC Milan? Yes, I can confirm that there has been in the past, but there has never been anything concrete.

"Fiorentina's interest is real, but Arsenal also like him a lot.

"Italy has always been his dream and, as he holds an Italian passport, a move to Italy is very likely.

"It is, however, important to pay attention to Arsenal."
