AC Milan sign Lazio captain Lucas Biglia

AC Milan have made their tenth summer signing by completing a deal for experienced Argentine midfielder Lucas Biglia, who joins from Lazio for €20 million.

Lucas Biglia has spent his last four seasons in Italy with Lazio, serving two of them as captain, and arrives at the San Siro on a three-year contract.

Lucas Biglia has been capped 50 times by Argentina, and represented them in three runners-up efforts in major tournaments – the World Cup in 2014 and the Copa America in 2015 and 2016

The signing of the 31-year-old marks an almost entirely new starting XI for Vincenzo Montella’s squad, who will be under pressure to challenge for the Scudetto after splashing almost €200 million this transfer window.

AC Milan’s summer influx, while certainly encouraging for their fans and entertaining for the neutrals, does raise question marks over the time it will take for the signings to assimilate.

Perhaps not so much for the likes of Lucas Biglia and Leonardo Bonucci, who are Serie A regulars, but for young, expensive signings from abroad, such as Andre Silva, a 21-year-old who joins from Porto in a deal that could end up costing Milan €40 million.

As it stands, the squad currently has a bloated look to it, for obvious reasons, and surely several players will join Keisuke Honda, Andrea Poli and Juraj Kucka on the exit list.
