Skysports.com understands that Liverpool and Lyon are keeping tabs on Real Sociedad starlet Antoine Griezmann.
The 19-year-old was a revelation as Sociedad won promotion to La Liga last season and he has carried his good form this term.
Premier League side Liverpool and Ligue 1 giants Lyon are now hoping to strike a deal to secure his signature in the January transfer window.
Griezmann's stock rose over the summer when he made a series of eye-catching displays for France in the Euro Under-19 tournament.
The youngster is tied to the San Sebastian outfit until the summer of 2015 and he is believed to command a fee in the €7million (£6m) region.
Sociedad are keen to retain the talented youngster, although the club's financial position could ultimately decide whether they strike a deal.
Griezmann had made 44 games for the club and has scored six goals while assisting 12 others.
