The rivalry between Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal is well-documented and there for all to see each season when the enemies lock horns in the North London Derby.

As a result, few players can list both Spurs and the Gunners on their CVs, with some of the most recent examples being Adebayor and Gallas.

Sol Campbell, who switched directly from Spurs to Arsenal, is still referred to as ‘Judas’ by the Tottenham faithful, which goes some way to explain the intense rivalry.

However, a report from Calcio Mercato claims that Spurs like the look of an ex-Arsenal academy player who is currently plying his trade for PSV.

20-year-old Donyell Malen has certainly caught the eye so far this season, scoring five goals in one game against Vitesse Arnhem. Malen has scored an impressive 20 goals in 58 games for PSV so far. He also scored on his debut for the senior Netherlands team this season (Wikipedia).

Spurs Web Opinion:

He certainly looks like a real talent, but he would be a risk at that kind of price. Would it be worth it just to annoy Arsenal? Probably.
