Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur have been dealt a blow in their alleged pursuit of Sebastien Corchia, after the highly-rated Sochaux defender declared an interest in joining AS Roma, reports

The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Ligue 1 in January, with a number of clubs keen to recruit the talented full-back.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has been credited with an interest in bringing Corchia to the Emirates Stadium, while north London rivals Spurs are also believed to be monitoring the Frenchman's situation at Stade Auguste Bonal.

However, it appears that the right-back would be willing to snub the advances of Arsenal and Tottenham, in favour of completing a switch to Stadio Olimpico, to link up with Rudi Garcia in Italy.

"Roma? Would be a very interesting club for me," Corchia told RMC. "At the moment there is nothing.

"I'm training, but I had meetings with the club [Sochaux], who are ready to let me go in January in the case of a good offer.

"At the moment there is nothing concrete on the table, there were only discussions."

Corchia has made 18 appearances for Sochaux this season - all of which came in Ligue 1 - though he hasn't featured for Hervé Renard's side since the 2-1 victory over Rennes on December 21.
