Anderlecht's Argentine star Lucas Biglia is hoping for a move to the Premier League, his British representative has confirmed.

The 23-year-old joined Anderlecht in 2006 from Independiente, and he has since proved himself as one of the best players in Belgium.

"We know there is interest in Lucas, and they know that he is keen on moving to England," his British agent Barry McIntosh confirmed to skysports.com.

"Lucas wants to play for Argentina, and he knows playing in England is a fantastic showcase for him to display his talents.

"He has already shunned offers to move elsewhere. He is good friends with Javier Mascherano, having played with him in all the youth teams and he has seen what a big success he has been in England.

"He would love to play with Javier again at senior level, and we think that is very achievable."
