Chadli to be sold in the last week of the window?


Chadli to be sold in the last week of the window?

Swansea City are going to step up their efforts to recruit Nacer Chadli after they were encouraged that he was left out of the Oslo squad, although that may have been simply to be able to take some youngsters and give them some further experience.

Swansea City have captured 31-year-old former Spanish international Fernando Llorente on a two-year deal and will need players to supply him, Llorente replaces Betafami Gomes who has returned to France to play for Marseille. He was never really a hit in Wales.

Chadli is getting limited playing time at Spurs with Christian Eriksen starting from the left and there are players coming through the ranks, not least Josh Onomah. Son Hueng-min could perhaps provide cover for both wings which would keep him further involved with perhaps Onomah and N'koudou (assuming the transfer eventually goes through) providing additional cover.

It will take the right offer for Spurs to sell, Pochettino would happily retain him but is prepared to let him leave for the right price. The right price and what is offered are usually two different things. There have been suggestions of a £7-million bid, well Alex Pritchard went for £8-million so the £15-million mentioned is far nearer the mark.

Apart from Swansea, Stoke City have been showing an interest as Mark Hughes continues to change their image form a team who kick people off the park. Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund have also been linked.

With Son away at the Olympics for the first game, possibly the first two, N'koudou (if he signs) not being fit, you would expect Spurs to hang on to Chadli in case of injury to Eriksen or Lamela and if he is going to be sold, to be sold in the last week of the summer transfer window.
