Chelsea rival Manchester United & Arsenal for signing of quality Argentine international (not Higuain)

Blues rival Reds for experienced Serie A South American.

Chelsea look to be joining Manchester United in the race to sign Lazio defensive midfielder Lucas Biglia this January, according to reports in Italy.

The Blues are suffering from some surprisingly poor performances at the start of this season, with players like Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas not at their best in midfield.

Biglia has shown himself to be a fine defensive player with some strong displays in Serie A in recent times, attracting interest from both Manchester United and Arsenal in the summer.
