Anderlecht midfield schemer Lucas Biglia is interesting Liverpool.

The Mirror says Liverpool are eying Argentine holding midfielder Biglia as a possible replacement for Lucas Leiva.

Brazilian ace Leiva, 24, was the Reds' player of the season last term and penned a big-money new deal in March.

But boss Kenny Dalglish may loan him out after bringing in expensive midfielders Charlie Adam, Jordan Henderson and Stewart Downing this summer.

If Leiva does go, Liverpool will need a cut-price replacement to deputise and protect the back four.

Biglia plays for Belgian side Anderlecht after joining from Argentina's Independiente in 2006.

He helped Argentina's Under-20 team win the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship, alongside Lionel Messi, and played for the senior side in this summer's Copa America.
