Nacer Chadli celebrates scoring the third goal for Tottenham

According to reports from Belgian outlet DH, Swansea City stand a better chance of signing Nacer Chadli than German giants Borussia Dortmund.

Tottenham Hotspur signed Chadli from FC Twente during the summer of 2013 and it has to be said that the winger has proven to be a decent signing for Spurs.

However, Chadli has not quite been able to establish himself as a regular starter for Tottenham over the past few years and the Belgian international was used predominantly as an impact substitute by manager Mauricio Pochettino last season.

As a result, Chadli missed out on a place in the Belgium national team for the 2016 European Championships and the 27-year-old has been linked with a move away from White Hart Lane this summer.

Recently reports had claimed that Swansea were keen on securing the services of Chadli but they had an initial bid rejected by Tottenham and with Borussia Dortmund also having entered the race to sign the winger, it seemed like the Swans would miss out on the signing of the former AGOVV Apeldoorn star.

In encouraging news for Swansea though, Belgian outlet DH have gone on to claim that Chadli is likelier to join Swansea than Dortmund as the competition for places at Signal Iduna Park is fiercer than at Tottenham.

Swansea recently sold prized asset Andre Ayew to West Ham United for a fee of around £20.5 million and although negotiations with Tottenham are never easy, the Welsh side seemingly stand a very good chance of completing a deal for Chadli.
