Anderlecht captain and Argentina international midfielder Lucas Biglia faces four months on the sidelines after agreeing to undergo shoulder surgery.

Sudpresse and La Derniere Heure/Les Sports both reported that Biglia, 25, will return to his native Argentina next week to have an operation. They claim Biglia took the decision after consulting both the management at his club and staff in the Argentina set-up.

Biglia dislocated his shoulder back in May and had been putting off an operation ever since.

The news comes just a day after Anderlecht lost Venezuelan midfielder Ronald Vargas for several months after he suffered a serious knee injury in a Belgian Cup match on Wednesday.
