Arsene Wenger will again look at signing Lucas Biglia.
Arsenal are revving up their interest in Argentina midfielder Lucas Biglia, 25, after scouts watched him play for Anderlecht.
Biglia, who operates the anchor role, was part of Argentina’s Copa America squad, joined the Belgian giants in 2006.

Arsenal were clearly in the market for a defensive midfielder in the summer, with a club record bid for Yann M’Vila of Rennes rejected according to the French club.
Widespread reports also linked the Gunners to Anderlecht star Lucas Biglia.
Biglia would certainly be a cheaper option than the gloriously talented M’Vila, who often brings Patrick Vieira to mind with his all round midfield game.
However, that is not to say Biglia is a bad player – and he is not in the Argentina team by chance.
Tutto Mercato in Italy report a Anderlecht have a verbal agreement that if a “a big club from a big league” come in, Biglia will be free to go.
The player himself clearly wants to improve, and hopes to move to one of the European elite.
“I think I have ended my cycle at Anderlecht and I want to do something new,” Biglia explained to Het Nieuwsblad in the summer.
“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.”
