Nacer Chadli joined West Bromwich Albion a year ago from Tottenham Hotspur for a club record fee, but the Belgian attacking midfielder could be allowed to leave the club this summer.

According to reports from Teamtalk, Leicester City have set their sights on Chadli, and are even willing to match West Brom’s £25 million asking price.

Chadli is not the first West Brom player to have come under Leicester’s consideration, with the club having failed with two bids for centre-back Jonny Evans.

While Leicester were unlucky in their pursuit of Evans, they could secure a deal for Chadli, who scored five goals in 31 Premier League games last season for the Baggies.

Premier League rivals Swansea City considered Chadli to be an option to replace Gylfi Sigurdsson, who joined Everton this summer, but the Wales outfit weren’t unwilling to match West Brom’s asking price.

Chadli has Premier League experience under his belt and would be a decent signing for the Foxes. It remains to be seen whether his arrival would clear the way for Riyad Mahrez to leave the King Power Stadium.
