According to The Mirror, Swansea City are set to make a new bid for Tottenham Hotspur winger Nacer Chadli having failed with their first offer.

The Swans have received a £20m bid from West Ham United for winger Andre Ayew according to Sky Sports, and manager Francesco Guidolin may be eyeing up possible replacements ahead of the transfer deadline later this month.

One player who appears to be a top target for Guidolin is Tottenham Hotspur misfit Nacer Chadli, who has slipped down the pecking order at White Hart Lane.

The Belgian international, 26, joined the club from Twente back in the summer of 2013, and despite having a decent goalscoring record with 25 goals in 119 games, he appears to have little future in North London.

Chadli hit seven goals in all competitions last season, but started just ten Premier League games, and is behind Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli, Erik Lamela and Son Heung-min in Mauricio Pochettino's plans.

Now, The Mirror claim that Swansea have made a move to sign Chadli, but have had their first bid rejected – and are ready to make a new offer in an attempt to seal a deal for the Tottenham winger.

The report adds that Chadli is 'frustrated' at Spurs, as his lack of first-team football led to him missing out on Belgium's Euro 2016 squad meaning he may fell fancy a move to Swansea, where he would play alongside former Tottenham team-mates Kyle Naughton and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

With two years left on his Spurs contract, Chadli may not come cheap, especially given that chairman Daniel Levy is known to drive a hard bargain - but with little chance of first-team football this coming season, it may well be time for Chadli to move on.

How much do you think Chadli is worth?
