The agent of Nacer Chadli has said that the Belgian international is keen to take a transfer from Tottenham Hotspur.
It would really have surprised some people because Chadli has been at White Hart Lane since the last few months only. He was signed by Andre Villas-Boas in July.
Before making his way to England, the winger was playing for the Dutch club FC Twente.
Tottenham had spent quite a few bucks to secure the services of Chadli and he was expected to feature regularly for the club from the beginning of the season. But, that didn’t happen and Chadli’s poor fitness has a lot to do with it.
The 24 years old player has featured only 13 times for Tottenham in the Premier League so far and he is yet to open his goal account.
The FIFA World Cup will be organized in a few months and if Chadli has to bring himself in contention to be selected in the Belgian squad, he needs to play matches and put up performances of high standard, but, at Tottenham, that’s not happening because he hasn’t been getting playing chances regularly there.
However, there is not much possibility of Chadli being signed by any club on a permanent basis during this mid season transfer window, but, he can be placed on loan.
Talking to the reporters yesterday, Chadli’s agent said, “With the World Cup nearing, everyone wants to play and Nacer is no different. Being placed on loan might be ideal for him at the moment. However, we are yet to have a chat with Tottenham about that.”
“Nacer has been asked to play at an unfamiliar position at Tottenham and that’s the main reason why he has not managed to give his best. He is not somebody who plays wide.”
