Arsenal and Everton are said to be among a host of clubs tracking Verase full-back Acharaf Laaza, who has been likened to Tottenham Hotspur's Gareth Bale by his agent.

Arsenal and Everton are reported to be chasing Verase full-back Acharaf Laaza, who is "very similar to Gareth Bale", according to the player's agent.

The 20-year-old Moroccan youngster made the switch from winger to full-back earlier this season and has been receiving rave reviews at the Serie B club ever since.

Laaza's agent Ali Barat told talkSPORT: "There's been a lot of interest from plenty of clubs from around Europe.

"He's very similar to Gareth Bale in terms of his pace and athleticism. I think he will be a big player in the Premier League very soon."

AC Milan and Mallorca are among a host of other clubs said to be interested in the player.
