The Memphis Depay rumour that we picked up on earlier today is sweeping the news aggregators this afternoon with some sites predictably citing it as a done deal. That’s probably some way short of the truth but if Spurs are looking to bring a wide man into the club, it could mean the end for Belgium international Nacer Chadli.
In pre-season, a number of our fringe players have been enjoying a resurgence. Erik Lamela is hitting the back of the net on a regular basis while Lewis Holtby has been scoring and assisting both in North America and Scandinavia.
All the while, Chadli’s name has been absent and there are several links being made which would all add up to an early sale for the man who joined us just 12 months ago. The most popular of these stories connects the Belgian as part of the deal which could potentially bring Morgan Schneiderlin to White Hart Lane.
Are Nacer Chadli’s days as a Spurs player numbered or does he deserve a second chance to carve out a career at White Hart Lane?
