Bookmakers Bet Victor have priced North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur as 8/1 outsiders to sign West Ham United's Aaron Cresswell in January.

The 27-year-old, whose contract expires in 2021, only signed an extension 18 months ago but the fact that West Ham are 19th in the Premier League and could potentially be a Championship club come May might well force him to consider his options when the transfer window opens next month.

And, if rumours are to be believed, Tottenham could might need a new left-back by February after ESPN reported that Manchester United would offer £50 million for Spurs star Danny Rose next month.

Ben Davies, Rose's understudy, has come in for plenty of criticism from Lilywhites fans this season and Mauricio Pochettino perhaps wouldn't get away with not bolstering his options for that role.

And Bet Victor believes that Pochettino could be in the running for the West Ham ace come January and have priced his side and Arsenal as 8/1 shots.

Arsenal probably aren't in dire need of a left-back, with Nacho Monreal impressing on the left side of the three-man defence, while summer signing Sean Kolasinac has looked superb since joining on a Bosman in July.

Liverpool and Everton are 4/1 co-favourites for the Merseyside-born defender, while Manchester City (6/1) are second favourites.
