Tottenham and Arsenal set to compete for French ace

The French international looks set to leave Sochaux

Both Tottenham and Arsenal are set to go head-to-head for the services of Sochaux midfielder, Marvin Martin.

The 24-year-old, who has made it into the final 23-man France squad for Euro 2012, has indicated he may be ready to move abroad and talkSPORT believe the North London rivals are both set to make their moves.

Martin, who scored twice on his début for Les Bleus last year, told France Football that enquiries have already been made for his signature, but that there was no rush to move before the European Championships.

“I’m ready to go play overseas, but I have not made a decision about my future,” said the diminutive midfielder.

“I know there has been contact but I’m 100 per cent focused on France and the Euros.

“I do not know if something can be done before the Euros. If not, we will wait and see how things develop.”

It is believed that Borussia Dortmund, Valencia and Fenerbahçe are also interested in Martin, but it appears that they may have to wait until after Euro 2012 before making any moves.

Martin has made 143 appearances for Sochaux since coming through their youth ranks, scoring 11 goals in his four seasons there.
