Arsenal cast their eyes over £8 Million rated South American midfielder

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has said that he hopes to buy a couple of players this month to strengthen his squad and the Independent claims that the Gunners are monitoring Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia to add much-needed power and control to their fragile midfield. Biglia has been valued at £8 million by the Belgium club and would be eligible to play in the Champions League.

Argentine international Biglia joined Anderlecht in 2006 and has since gone on to make 186 appearances for the club in a defensive midfield position, still chipping in with 11 goals. He still has more than 2 years left on his contract and was monitored by Arsenal even in the summer.

Wenger has identified midfield as a position that needs urgent attention in the transfer window as the Gunners have lacked a physical presence in the middle of the pitch since the departure of Alex Song. Arsenal have already offloaded Marouane Chamakh and Johan Djourou to West Ham and Hannover, respectively and with Andrei Arshavin and Sebastien Squillaci set to follow, there is money for Wenger to spend.

With crunch games coming up in the following weeks, including matches against Manchester City and Chelsea and a Champions League tie against Bayern Munich which could define Arsenal’s season, Wenger wants to reinforce his side that has looked shaky on multiple occasions and Biglia could be the answer to Gunners’ problems.

  • Roland C Rozario

    Arsenal appears to be ‘feet-dragging’ to reach some decisive purchase in the transfer window!
    Don’t they know they need to do it asap with the likes of competition from the Manchesters [the money people] and the other more hungrier clubs to win something!!

  • Not

    Wenger scouts a player only to back off after days. We are no more optimistic about arsenal fc.

  • Is he the key? AW WILL NOT SIGN HIM.
