AC Milan's 15 year-old starlet Marco Cestagalli is being tracked by both Tottenham and Aston Villa, reports the Daily Star.

Cestagalli is currently learning his trade in Milan's famous Nazionali youth team and has impressed with a number of eye-catching performances helping his team to an unbeaten start.

They 15-year-old can play in either a central defensive position and at left-back. His versatility and consistency has done enough to attract the interest of Andre Villas-Boas at Tottenham.

AVB faces a battle in bringing Cestagalli to White Hart Lane, however, as Paul Lambert is also reportedly keen on the young defender.

If Cestagalli was to move to the Premier League he would join compatriots Giuseppe Rossi, Federico Macheda and Arturo Lupoli, who all joined English clubs at a young age.

However, all three of those players failed to impress in the English game.

Aston Villa's interest should come as no surprise as Lambert continues to put his faith in youth over experience.

Tottenham, on the other hand, invested over £100m in the summer, bringing in a mixture of young and experienced international talent.
