Report: Tottenham to consider selling Nacer Chadli this summer

Nacer Chadli

Nacer Chadli has been linked with a Tottenham exit.

Nacer Chadli has had a bad 24 hours, left out of the Belgium squad for Euro 2016 - and now linked with being sold by Tottenham.

The Mail claim Chadli is one of three players who could be sold, along with Ryan Mason and Nabil Bentaleb.

Chadli is one of three remaining players signed by Franco Baldini with the Gareth Bale money in 2013, along with Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen.

The other four, Roberto Soldado, Etienne Capoue, Vlad Chiriches and Paulinho, were all sold last summer.

Chadli has had his moments in a Tottenham shirt, including scoring in a North London derby, but has figured more from the bench this season rather than up front.

He has made 10 starts in the Premier League this season, plus a further 18 appearances from the bench, scoring three goals.

During Europa League and FA Cup campaigns he has scored an additional four goals this season in 10 appearances.

Last season was more productive, scoring 11 league goals in 35 games, 28 starts, but he has found it more difficult to get into the team with Erik Lamela and Heung Min Son in front of him.

His Euro 2016 snub is a reflection of his backwards step this year, and that could be key as a realisation to him that he may want to move on for the sake of his career rather than risk becoming a passenger at Tottenham.
