Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa are thought to be one of the sides chasing AC Milan teenager Marco Cestagalli.

Italian website has claimed Tottenham and Villa are taking a look at AC Milan youngster Marco Cestagalli as Andre Villas-Boas mulls over his next potential investment for the Spurs youth system.

Tottenham have one of the best development squads in the country and are always on the look out to add quality and competition into their youth ranks, which benefits the first team in the long run.

Here are five facts about the Milan youngster.

1) Cestagalli can play two different positions in defence; on the left side of central defence and as a left-back.
