Stuttgart defender Serdar Tasci has put Arsenal and Tottenham on alert, after indicating a willingness to move.


The Germany international’s agent was speaking to Italian website when he voiced the players desire to leave, which will interest Arsene Wenger and Harry Redknapp.


Wenger has been a long time admirer of the 24-year-old and could be tempted into a January move if he manages to offload Sebatien Squillaci, who has disappointed since his move to Emirates Stadium.


Redknapp is also looking for cover as injuries continue to dog Micheal Dawson, whilst Ledley King is liable to break down at any moment given his track-record.


Tasci’s agent, Maurizio Gaudino, said: "Clubs across Europe are interested in him, but he's hard to please.”


However, Arsenal and Spurs may have a fight for his signature as Gaudino insisted the player is happy to move to a number of destinations.


“He would like Italy, Spain or England,” said the agent.


The Stuttgart stopper was born in Germany to Turkish parents, and has 13 international caps to his name with Germany.


The defender signed a five year contract in 2009 and any bid would have to be sizable, as Tasci is a key member of the Stuttgart squad.
