Lucas Biglia: Is keen to test himself at a higher level and could leave Anderlec

The Argentina international has been linked with a number of Premier League sides in the recent past, including Arsenal, Newcastle and Norwich.

The likes of Real Madrid, Fiorentina and AC Milan as well as clubs from Russia have also been credited with an interest in the 26-year-old, who moved to Belgium from Independiente in 2006.

Biglia admits he is keen to test himself at a higher level and secure his place in the Argentina side ahead of the World Cup in Brazil in 2014.

To do so he concedes he needs to leave Anderlecht sooner rather than later, though he is open to the exact destination of his next club.

"Time is running out," he told Het Nieuwsblad. "I don't have to be at a big top team, just to a bigger league. I need that if I want to play with Argentina in 2014 at the World Cup.

"If I arrive in Argentina my manager will pick me up at the airport. I have asked him to tell me in Buenos Aires what my options are. I hope to begin after New Year's Eve. In England, Spain and Italy there is not a real winter break.

"It's clear Spain and Italy are dream destinations but I won't close the gate on Russia."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
