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."
