Manchester City defender Matija Nastasic has been offered to Premier League duo Arsenal and Tottenham, according to

It's been revealed that the Serbian centre-half, who has struggled for opportunities at the Etihad of late, is available for the cut price of £5 million, and could now head to north London in the January transfer window.

Nastasic struggles 

In fact, it's been suggested that the 21-year-old was told to find a new club this past summer, and despite being the subject of interest from a number of Italian clubs, a move failed to materialise for the youngster. 

In truth, he's struggled under Manuel Pellegrini of late. After initially starring alongside club captain Vincent Kompany at the heart of the side's defence, Nastasic has fallen down the pecking order at the club after the Sky Blues signed the likes of Martin Demichelis and Eliaquim Mangala in the past few transfer windows. 

It appears, then, that Nastasic, who earns as much as £75,000-a-week at the Etihad, may well move to one of Manchester City's Premier League rivals in the winter.

North London battle 

There's no doubt about it, at just £5m, Nastasic would prove quite the coup for the duo from north London. It remains to be seen as to whether either club would be willing to take the youngster on, but both sides are in need of strengthening after a disappointing start to the Premier League season. 

Arsenal already appear to be out of the title race, with the club as many as 12 points behind table toppers Chelsea, whilst Tottenham are down in 12th position after the opening 11 fixtures. 

And, both Arsenal and Spurs have endured defensive problems throughout the campaign so far. After selling ex-captain Thomas Vermaelen to La Liga giants Barcelona in the summer, Arsene Wenger doesn't have any real back-ups for the likes of Per Mertesacker and Laurent Koscielny. 

Tottenham, meanwhile, have struggled to keep teams at bay this term, and have conceded more goals than they've scored in their opening games. Arsenal and Tottenham fans may well be hoping their clubs can complete a deal for the Manchester City man sooner rather than later.
