North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are set to do battle for Manchester United's Eric Bailly in January.

The Ivory Coast international has fallen out of favour at Old Trafford and lasted only 19 minutes in the club's 3-2 come-from-behind win over Newcastle United in the English Premier League earlier this month.

According to the Daily Star, the former Villarreal defender could be offered an escape route with both the Gunners and Spurs keeping tabs on his situation in Manchester.

The Red Devils forked out a reported £30 million to the Spanish La Liga club two years ago, and despite moments of promise, Bailly has become the fall guy this season with Jose Mourinho often lamenting his lack of recruits in the centre-back's position.

Bailly has started just five games for United this season across all competitions and has managed just 21 minutes in the club's last six league fixtures
