Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are eyeing Newcastle United midfielder Olivier Kemen, according to a report in France.

Kemen, with France for the European Under-19 Championships in Greece, joined Newcastle from Metz two years ago.

And L’Equipe report that Liverpool and Tottenham are keen to sign the techically-gifted player.

The 18-year-old, on the fringes of the first-team squad, has not made a competitive senior appearance for the club.

Tough-tackling Kemen has been a regular for the club’s Under-21s.
