Is Memphis Depay the most in-form player in Europe right now?

PSV Eindhoven

PSV Eindhoven super-prospect Memphis Depay is lighting up the Eredivisie at the moment and the Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United target scored again.

Having beaten Ajax by a 3-1 score inside their Eredivise rivals home ground, the Amsterdam Arena, PSV Eindhoven put together their third successive win in the 2014-15 league campaign - and once again, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United target Memphis Depay, was instrumental in the strong victory.

Considering the manner in which Depay has played at the start of the season - picking up where he left off last year and in the summer for the Dutch national football team at the World Cup tournament in Brazil - questions may have to be asked whether the 20-year-old is in fact the most in-form player in Europe right now.

In a hat-trick of Eredivisie matches this season, Depay has completed 73% of his 101 pass attempts, completed 40% of his crosses, supplied seven goal-scoring opportunities (one of which became a direct assist), completed eight dribbles and has scored five goals from an astonishing 17 shots.

On average, Depay has been scoring one goal for every 3.4 shots but, in perhaps the most extraordinary statistic of all, he has been responsible for a goal (either scoring, or producing an assist) every 44 minutes he is on the field.

With less than one week remaining in the football transfer window, should Tottenham Hotspur or Manchester United make one last concerted effort to recruit left-sided forward Depay, a £10 million-rated athlete from the small town of Moordrecht?

Or will United move for more defensive-minded players now that Angel di Maria appears destined for the vacant number 7 shirt? Even Spurs may be content with Erik Lamela considering the Argentine's dazzling form already.
