QPR midfielder Alejandro Faurlin is attracting interest from two unnamed Barclays Premier League clubs - believed to be north London rivals Tottenham and Arsenal.

Goal.com reported last month that the 25-year-old Argentine could become the subject of a three-way transfer battle, as Inter Milan are also thought to be monitoring the player's progress.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is believed to have had the player scouted on a number of occasions at Loftus Road this season, with a view to making an offer to bring him to the Emirates Stadium in the New Year.

Arsenal have been linked with a handful of creative midfielders following Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri's summer departures, with Mario Gotze continuously placed on the club's radar.

Meanwhile, Spurs have been linked with a move for Faurlin as a potential replacement for Luka Modric should he leave White Hart Lane in the forthcoming transfer window.

Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp has been credited with an interest in Faurlin, who is under contract at QPR until 2014 - but has attracted attention after making an impressive start to his Barclays Premier League career.

"I'm not encouraging calls because Ali is very happy at QPR," revealed his agent Lucas Cominelli.

"But when the phone rings and there are two Premiership teams and one from Serie A expressing their admiration, it's a testimony to the way Ali has started in the top flight."
