Friend of the Football Transfer Tavern, Zarif Rasul from talkSPORT has popped into today to explain to punters that Liverpool and Tottenham are both in pursuit of highly rated FC Twente winger Nacer Chadli.
The 23-year-old Belgian international, who has already won nine caps for his country, was impressive for the Dutch side last season, netting 12 league goals and that has attracted admirers from the Premier League with Brendan Rodgers and Andre Villas-Boas both interested in summer move for the former AGOVV Apeldoorn man.
However the English clubs could face fierce competition from top clubs in Europe with Juventus, Borussia Dortmund and Shakhtar Donetsk all interested parties for a possible summer switch with the player moving into his final year of his current contract.
Rasul tells punters gathered around the bar that Chadli’s agent Daniel Evrard believes his client, who is valued at £8.5 million would prefer to make the switch to England despite the lack of Champions League football at both Liverpool and Tottenham.
“Nacer wants to play in the Champions League, but he is also attracted by English football. We expect something from this angle,” Evrard told De Telegraaf.
Will either Liverpool or Spurs come out on top in the race to land Chadli? Rate this rumour below.
