New Southampton boss Mauricio Pochettino is keen on Anderlecht midfielder Lucas Biglia.

The Mirror says Pochettino is an admirer of his 26-year-old compatriot.

Biglia, a talented midfield schemer, has gone on strike in his native South America to force through a move from the Belgians to England.

Arsenal, West Ham and Liverpool are all interested too, but Pochettino, who courted Biglia when at Espanyol, could edge them out in the £8million race.
