Are Spurs Now a More Attractive Proposition for Players Than Arsenal?

BR - Tottenham yesterday confirmed the signing of Lewis Holtby, who will join the club on a free transfer in the summer.

Spurs had emerged as favourites to sign the German international earlier this week, after months of speculation linking Holtby with a move to Tottenham’s North London rivals Arsenal. (Arsenal, English Premier League, Tottenham Hotspur, Transfers)

Alright, I'll bite. As an Arsenal fan, I think yes in certain situations, that is. Tottenham have had good signings recently like Van Der Vaart among them. However, if you think about it, many of those signings may not have made to the Arsenal starting squad that easily. Look at Van Der Vaart(2010) for example, I doubt that he would have been able to beat Fabregas to that CAM role if he had signed for Arsenal. I really doubt he would have liked to be a bench warmer knowing that he is good enough to play for many other teams. If, Fabregas would have left in that summer then maybe Wenger would have tried to signed him. However, the second issue may have resulted on his wages which is something where Tottenham may be ahead of Arsenal at the moment. The Arsenal board will not bend over for anyone when it comes to wages, apparently. So for me, players first look at the squads and think about which team is easiest to break into. Second they look at the money they will earn. Third if the player is interested on how competitive the teams is, they look at the competitions the team plays in and what the chances of getting there are..........CL would be that competition, since many of the top stars don't care for the other one it seems.

Yes I would go to Spurs over Arsenal. Maybe even Everton too.
