AC Milan reportedly have a deal in place to Argentine midfielder Lucas Biglia, his representative has revealed.
The former Anderlecht man has agreed personal terms with the Rossoneri nearly a month ago, and he will not waiting on a solution on his future. The Rossoneri have already signed the likes of Mateo Musacchio, Ricardo Rodriguez, Franck Kessie and Andre Silva on a combined £69m fee, and they look set to continue their spending spree with Sunderland’s Fabio Borini currently undergoing his medical examination.
Biglia has been constantly linked with a move elsewhere with Manchester United previously holding an interest in his services, and according to agent Enzo Montepaone, his client has set his sights on a move to San Siro. The Rossoneri have already shown their transfer ambitions under the new Chinese consortium, and Biglia’s capture may not be the end of it with several other high-profile players also on their radar.
He told Il Messaggero: “Lucas talked to Lazio a month ago, declaring his choice to leave Rome. There’s a deal with Milan and we’re waiting for the two clubs to come to a definite agreement. I know they’re talking about finding a solution, because there’s also an opportunity in England but I can’t say any more about that. Milan and Lazio are talking and they have to find a deal, next week I’ll be in Italy and hopefully everything will be resolved quickly.”
Lazio are currently demanding a sum of around £17.7m and the clubs are likely to resolve the valuation before their respective pre-season tours kickoff. Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny and Fiorentina striker Nikola Kalinic are the other names to have propped up the Milan shortlist this month as they look to end Juventus’ dominance in the Serie A, and lift their first league title since the 2010-11 season. Biglia bagged four goals and three assists for the Capital outfit last term as they finished fifth in the Serie A standings. He also took over the captain’s armband in the period with Antonio Candreva having joined rivals Inter Milan last summer.
