Lucas Biglia: Has been on strike in an attempt to force move to the Premier Leag

The Argentine has been linked with several Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur, West Ham United and Newcastle United, but could be interested in linking up with his compatriot, Pochettino, at St Mary's.

Biglia has been on strike in his attempts to force a move to England during the January transfer window and it remains to be seen what his future holds.

Pochettino, who succeeded Nigel Adkins on Friday after the ex-Southampton boss' shock sacking, has also been linked with midfielder Joan Verdu.

The Spaniard has just six months left on his contract at Pochettino's former club, Espanyol.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
