Arsenal are reportedly monitoring Ante Vukuic with a view to making a January move for the player.

The Hajduk Split striker has been earning rave reviews after scoring 11 goals in 16 games for the Croatian champions, and Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is thought to be keen on bringing the teenager to the Emirates.

Media sources in England claim that the Gunners boss is considering selling Nicklas Bendtner to make space in his current first team squad for Vukuic, but these reports are unconfirmed.

Arsenal are more likely to test the player's ability in the reserve ranks at Ashburton Grove before gambling on the player in the first team, and Wenger has a track record of developing young players into stars in north London.

The Metro reports that Spurs boss Harry Redknapp is also interested in the player, with the White Hart Lane club reportedly sending scouts alongside Arsenal's to watch the player.

A Croatian youth international who is expected to attract attention during the European U21 Championship finals in Denmark next summer, both Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur will look to secure a deal before that tournament, leaving the opening month of 2011 as their only option.

A fee is yet to be discussed by any of the parties involved, but Premier League rivals Spurs and Arsenal would have to pay a decent fee to land one of Europe's hottest properties.
