Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal continue to track highly-rated Sochaux full-back Sebastien Corchia after he revealed he could leave the French club in January.

Corchia, 22, came close to joining Lyon this summer only for OL to baulk at Sochaux's estimated €5 million asking price.

That would be only a minor obstacle for the English Premier League duo with Spurs reportedly having already considered making a bid in excess of that during the last transfer window.

"I just put in my performances. I don't know much about the speculation," Corchia, who has featured in his club's four L1 games to date, told L'Equipe recently. "Leaving this winter could be a possibility. It's up to Sochaux to negotiate with the interested clubs. I prefer to focus on the present."
