West Brom did not have the best of summers in the transfer market as they failed to bring in a number of key targets, yet they did end up breaking their transfer record with the addition of Chadli.
The Belgium international arrived from Tottenham Hotspur, and it has not taken him long to make a huge impact at the Hawthorns with a couple of outstanding performances.
Chadli was instrumental in the 4-2 win over West Ham United, and again at Sunderland for long spells he ran the show and demonstrated exactly why the Baggies broke their transfer record to bring him in.
Co-commentating for the BBC, former player Jason Roberts said the winger has an abundance of quality and highlighted his pace as a real factor in helping West Brom adopt a more attack-minded mentality.
"Nacer Chadli relieves a lot of pressure with his pace and his physicality. He's got real quality and it's a great finish. What he gives his pace and you can see why Tony Pulis went out and paid what he did for him," Roberts said.
Since moving to West Brom, the former Tottenham man has scored three times and produced two assists in four Premier League matches.
With Chadli on one side and fellow new signing Matt Phillips on the opposite flank, West Brom now have pace and directness in wide areas and an attacking outlet they so often lacked last season.
