Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur face competition from Roma in the race to sign Sebastien Corchia, according to reports.

TalkSPORT cite speculation in Italy when claiming that Aurelio Andreazzoli is eager to bring the former French U21 international to the Stadio Olimpico, despite the right-back finding himself in a relegation battle this season.

Indeed, Sochaux have five games to get themselves out of trouble in Ligue 1, as a number of clubs begin to circle the former Le Mans starlet.

The north London teams lead the Premier League chase for the 22-year-old, whilst Juventus and Inter Milan are also keen on bringing the player to Serie ‘A’, according to the radio station.

Arsene Wenger has a couple of options for the Gunners at right-back, with Bacary Sagna and Carl Jenkinson currently fighting for the first team spot at the Emirates Stadium.

However, the Frenchman is being linked with a move away from Arsenal in the summer, and Corchia could be a direct replacement.

Andre Villas-Boas, meanwhile, is another manager with two main options at right back, with Kyle Walker and Kyle Naughton available to the Spurs chief.

Corchia would add further competition at White Hart Lane, although create questions of the possibility of having three players in the position. The Tottenham Hotspur manager could have a transfer decision to make at the end of the season.
