Paris Saint-Germain forward Ezequiel Lavezzi will not be short of options if he decides to leave the club in January after Tottenham and Arsenal emerged as suitors for the Argentine.

French publication le10sport report that Lavezzi is considering his future and may well depart in January as he struggles for force his way in a side which already has two world class forwards in Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani.

Lavezzi only signed for PSG in the summer of 2012 but already has stiff competition for a regular starting berth and has found himself criticised when he has not delivered on the rare opportunity he is handed a start.

The 28 year old will certainly not be short of options come the New Year with reports suggesting that Arsenal and Tottenham are prepared to compete with the likes of AC Milan and Internazionale.

Arsenal have been linked with a number of strikers in recent weeks despite the wonderful goal-scoring form of Olivier Giroud. The French forward is viewed as the only genuine option for manager Arsene Wenger as Nicklas Bendtner looks set to finally leave the club permanently in January.

Should Wenger decide he needs to strengthen then Lavezzi could be a genuine option as he has proven during his time at Napoli and PSG that he has the ability to score goals at the very highest level.

Tottenham may also enter the running as despite spending in excess of £100m in the summer, they have scored just nine league goals in 12 games as Roberto Soldado struggles to find his best form and Jermain Defoe is consistently left on the bench.

The north London duo would certainly have to make a substantial offer as Lavezzi is under contract until the summer of 2016 and PSG would not want to make much of a loss on the £23m they paid just 15 months ago.

Lavezzi has scored just one goal this season but he has repeatedly featured for Argentina and played a crucial role in helping them qualify for next summer's World Cup in Brazil.
