Tottenham are lining up a move for Leyton Orient winger Moses Odubajo ahead of the January transfer window.

Odubajo 20 is rated as one of the best young players in the lower divisions and has played a crucial role in Orient’s unbeaten start to the League One season.

Manchester United and Arsenal and believed to have talent spotters monitoring the player but Tottenham are planning a £1million bid in the new year.

It’s thought Orient who have eight wins from nine league games value Odubajo at closer to £3million but the player has been made aware of the interest from elsewhere and could push for a switch.

Andre Villas-Boas has already had the green light from Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy to spend in January and is working on a list of targets.

However while experience tops the bill there would be room for Odubajo who can play on the right wing or at right-back and could be a useful impact player.
