Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger decided to go for Anderlecht’s Argentine defensive midfielder, according to TalkSport, in the attempt to bring the 25-year-old at the Emirates Stadium. According to reports, Arsenal is expected to start the negotiations for the player with a £6.5m offer which could force the Belgian team to lower their £8 m demand.
Biglia joined Anderlecht in 2006 and after 5 years he was quoted in Het Nieuwsblad declaring that he is ready to move away from the club
‘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’s efforts to sign him were also heard by the Argentine who stated:
“I know that there are movements but they are just usual events to me.”
One of the best agents in UK also confirmed the news saying:
“The interest in Biglia is growing all the time, and yes I can confirm a number of Premier League clubs are checking on him,”
Manager Arsene Wenger is looking for two top midfielders he can bring at Arsenal in January. The Frenchman wants to transfer an offensive and a defensive midfielder, and after the way things went in the summer with Yann M’Vila Wenger seems to have given up on the idea of bringing the French international to London.
