Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas is believed to be interested in landing highly-rated Leyton Orient winger Moses Odubajo in the January transfer window.
The 20 year old has been in outstanding form and has played a major role in helping Orient sit top of League One, with eight wins and one draw in their opening nine league games.
Odubajo has scored two league goals but his standout performances have led to him being considered one of the best young talents outside the Premier League.
Now it seems Tottenham could attempt to lure the winger away from Brisbane Road, with the Metro reporting that they are prepared to make a first offer of £1m in January.
Manchester United and Arsenal are said to have been monitoring the progress of Odubajo but Spurs are keen to beat their top four rivals to the hugely talented youngster.
With interest from some of the biggest clubs in England, Orient will be aware that it will be difficult to keep hold of their young winger. However, it may well mean his value will rise if there is genuine competition from Spurs, Arsenal and United.
Odubajo spent time on-loan with three non-league teams in St. Albans City, Sutton United and Bishop Stortford, but has now firmly established himself in the Orient first team and has earned rave reviews for his performances on the wing.
The flying winger is said to be have been made aware of interest from Tottenham and could attempt to push through a deal in order to test himself in the top flight.
Spurs are expected to further strengthen their squad in January but it is unlikely that chairman Daniel Levy will sanction huge transfer fees after a summer in which the club spent over £100m on seven new players.
With Orient believed to want around £3m for Odubaju, neither Tottenham, Arsenal or United will be deterred by the fee and may well submit offers if his sensational form continues.
