Arsenal look set to sign Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia during the transfer window after he revealed he wants to move.
The 25-year-old, Biglia aka El Principito has now represented Argentina six times and has been of huge interest to many European Clubs.
“I think I have ended my cycle at Anderlecht and I want to do something new,” Biglia told Dutch news agency 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.”
Arsene Wenger was said to have received a glowing report from chief scout Steve Rowley.
