Nacer Chadli wings way to Tottenham after £7m deal is agreed with FC Twente
Monday 22 July 2013
Tottenham have boosted their attacking options with the signing of Belgium winger Nacer Chadli.
The 23-year-old signed for a fee in the region of £7 million from FC Twente yesterday, subject to a medical. He becomes Spurs’ second major signing of the close season after they brought in Brazilian midfielder Paulinho for £17 million.
Chadli, who has dual Moroccan and Belgian citizenship, played once for Morocco in a friendly before switching to Belgium in 2011. He joins Belgium team-mates Jan Vertonghen and Mousa Dembélé at White Hart Lane. Spurs hope Chadli can help them achieve their top-four Premier League target
