If the new reports are to be believed, London heavyweights Arsenal are set to sanction a £10 million bid for Belgian Pro League club Anderlecht’s defensive midfielder Lucas Biglia to bolster the squad further.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, reportedly, has been monitoring the 25-year-old Argentine international for some time and the club’s continuous injury woes have led to the decision to ready a move for the talented midfielder who has been a huge influence at his Brussels club thus far.

The boss has witnessed a number of his first team players suffer with injuries and is now keen to solve the problem by stacking up options in the midfield, and sees the adaptable Argentine as a useful addition to his squad at the Emirates Stadium.

The January transfer window will be crucial for the North London club and will decide if the club stands any chance of challenging the Premiership rivals like Manchester United and Manchester City for the title, or at least a finish in the top four. Currently, midfielders Jack Wilshere and Abou Diaby are sidelined. Defenders Kieran Gibbs, Andre Santos, Bacary Sagna and Carl Jenkinson have also bowed out with injury issues.

Biglia, himself, may consider a move to the Emirates following his long-term plans as a fixture in Alejandro Sabella Argentine national team set-up, since a high profile move would clearly help him at this stage in his career.

The Argentine, who is a box-to-box midfielder and known for his strong tackling and intelligent distribution, has also attracted attention from the likes of AC Milan and Fiorentina, according to a Caughtoffside report.
