Swansea City have Tottenham Hotspur attacking midfielder Nacer Chadli in their sights and could make a move for the Belgium international this summer, according to The Mirror.
The Liberty Stadium outfit are in the market for offensive reinforcements, namely a new centre forward, but the 27-year-old could well be a shrewd acquisition for the Welsh club.
No details are listed about a potential fee and it remains to be seen if Spurs would be willing to part with Chadli, who joined the North London club from Twente in the summer of 2013.

Looking at the deal objectively, the playmaker may well be interested in a switch to the Swans.
Chadli struggled with injuries at White Hart Lane last term and fell down Mauricio Pochettino’s preferences as a result, starting only ten Premier League games in 2015-16.
The emergence of Dele Alli has stifled the winger’s chances to play at Tottenham and he was left out of the Belgian squad for Euro 2016 as a result.
Spurs will be hoping to have strength in depth as they enter a new campaign that contains Champions League football and on his day Chadli has proven himself as a capable operator.

However, Pochettino will surely weigh up any possible bid from Swansea and the gifted attacking midfielder could be available for transfer if Guidolin’s men come up with a considerable offer.
Along with Alli, Chadli has the likes of Erik Lamela, Christian Eriksen and Son Heung-min as competition for an attacking midfield starting berth at White Hart Lane.
