Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keeping tabs on Feyenoord's Bruno Martins Indi and Sochaux's Sebastien Corchia, with a view of making a summer approach.
Martins is a left-back by trade but is also capable of playing in central defence and has impressed with Feyenoord in the last two Eredivisie seasons. The 21-year-old, who was born in Portugal, already has seven senior international caps for Holland and had scored in the 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Hungary and Romania last year.
Tottenham are expected to allow Danny Rose to join Sunderland permanently at the end of the season and Andre Villas-Boas is considering filling that void with Martins, in order to provide competition to Benoit Assou-Ekotto.
Spurs have also been linked with a move for Sochaux full-back Corchia, becoming the latest European club to show an interest in the 22-year-old wing-back.
Villas-Boas already has Kyle Walker and Kyle Naughton for the right-back role but the Portuguese tactician is looking to strengthen his ranks further, ahead of a potential Champions League campaign next season, according to talkSPORT, and has joined the race for Corchia.
PSG are understood to be leading the competition to snap up the Frenchman but Italian giants AC Milan and Juventus are also understood to be ardent admirers of the youngster, who can operate at right-back or as a midfielder on the same side.
Corchia, who joined Sochaux from Ligue 2 side Le Mans in 2011, has earned rave reviews for his performances in the French top flight this season and is now considered as one of the most talented young defenders in the country.
Corchia is also renowned for his free-kick ability and the report also claims it would take an offer of around £8m to make Sochaux part with their star asset.
