Tottenham and Arsenal are stepping up their interest in AS Monaco wonderkid Yohan Mollo.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has had scouts at the Stade Louis II this season watching the 18-year-old in action and it looks as though the Frenchman is planning a January swoop, says the Daily Mail.

Tottenham's talent spotters have also shown an interest in Mollo's progress amid suggestions they could also be planning a move as soon as the transfer window re-opens.

There is no shortage of interest in the youngster as Italian champions Inter Milan have made the short trip across the border to check Mollo out for themselves.

Mollo has caught the eye playing for the French under-19 side and Monaco know they are facing a losing battle to keep hold of him.
