Manchester United are inching closer to finalising a deal for Lazio star Lucas Biglia, according to reports.
Biglia has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer, and The Sun reports that Louis van Gaal is poised to sign the Argentine international this week.
According to the report, United will spend £17.5m on the former Anderlecht man.
Lazio were understood to be keen to hold onto the 29-year-old, but will now sell the player to United and will attempt to sign Genk ace Sergei Milinkovic for £9m.
Biglia has starred for the Stadio Olimpico based club since joining in 2013.
The midfielder has played in 53 Serie A matches and played a starring role last season as the Biancocelesti grabbed a Champions League play-off sport with a third-placed finish.
The Sun also reports that United are expected to complete a deal for Barcelona winger Pedro following the UEFA Super Cup on Tuesday.
