The Belgian midfielder has attracted the interest of a host of top European clubs including the Gunners, Liverpool and Southampton.
But it now appears that the player is destined for Serie A with Inter claiming to have opened talks with the player’s club.
That has not put off Premier League sides who will be monitoring the situation closely in an attempt to bring Biglia in before the transfer window shuts at 11pm on Thursday but Inter appear to have taken the lead in negotiations.
It may well be that the victorious club in the battle for the player’s signature is the side willing to meet Anderlecht’s valuation.
The Belgian Champions are looking for a fee in the region of £8 million and it is reported that Inter would not be willing to stretch to that amount.
It is not clear however whether any of the English clubs will be willing to match that evaluation either.
Arsenal are thought to be waiting to see what happens in their attempts to sign West Ham’s Mohamed Diame. Should that deal fall through, we can expect a last minute transfer to the Emirates!
