The Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal youngsters are both catching the eye at Ibrox, but who looks the greater prospect?

Scottish giants Rangers have found themselves with the enviable situation of having two of the most exciting young players at two of the Premier League's biggest sides at their club this season, as Mark Warburton looks to finally return the Gers back to the Scottish Premiership after what will be four years out of the division.

There is little doubt that Tottenham's Nathan Oduwa and Arsenal's Gedion Zelalem are two hugely talented, highly thought of players back at their parent clubs, but both are getting some serious first team football under their belt at Ibrox, taking part in Warburton's fluid, easy on the eye playing style that will only aid their development as a player. But which one has displayed the most promise? Who is the better prospect?

19-year-old Oduwa arrived alongside fellow Spur Dominic Ball just after the season began, having gotten his first taste of senior football at Luton Town last season. But it was in this summer's pre-season friendlies that he really announced himself as one to watch, impressing as part of the Spurs first team, and could have arguably joined a Championship club, though few can claim to boast the history and support of the Glasgow outfit. 

Zelalem, who is just under a year younger than Oduwa, joined from the Gunners about a week later, and for the central midfielder, it was his first ever taste of senior football. Unlike Oduwa, he has long been touted as one to watch, and already has a couple of appearances for Arsenal under his belt from the last two seasons.

Both are flair players that possess plenty of skill, youngsters who will excite spectators and should go on to great things in their careers.

Oduwa drew criticism for his extravagant wing play after moving, but he has consistently proved himself to be capable of making the difference as well as wowing the crowd, and he has three assists in ten matches for the Gers, six of them starts.

Zelalem has starred as a central playmaker, and has a superb five assists in just seven matches, all of which have been starts. 

It is clear both teenagers are set to become top players, with their time at Rangers with Warburton vital in their development with whichever club they realise their potential at, but who do Rangers fans think is the best prospect?
