Lucas Biglia: Admits he could leave Anderlecht
Anderlecht star Lucas Biglia has revealed he could leave the Belgian giants this month, but only for a bigger club.
The Argentine international has been linked with a host of clubs including Real Madrid and Inter Milan - although the strongest interest is emanating from the Premier League with Arsenal reportedly leading the chase.
Up to half-a-dozen English clubs are thought to be in the reckoning, and Biglia is open to his future options.
"I can leave for €8million in the current market, and that is quite a lot of money - but I agreed to this transfer fee myself so I can't really complain," he said.
"There are clubs ready to pay that amount but they are not better than Anderlecht so for now I focus on this club. I want to at least be playing in Europe.
"I think we could really do something in the Champions League too this year. So there are many challenges left here."
Meanwhile, Biglia's team-mate Cheikhou Kouyate - also linked with a move to England, has announced he is likely to stay put.
"I've gotten a lot of questions about my future lately. So I've decided to stay. The club did a lot for me and I am doing something back now," he said.
"There are also certain players who convinced me to stay for one more year."
