Swansea City found themselves in trouble in the last term, as they finished the campaign in the 15th position in the Premier League. They faced a number of problems in their midfield throughout the last season and are looking forward to bring in a number of new players in the summer transfer window.
The Welsh club will undoubtedly look towards their talisman Gylfi Sigurdsson, who made it possible for them to stay back in the top flight with nine goals to his name and a dominating display of skills to stabilise the midfield for his team. However, with the possibility of the Icelandic attacker leaving the team in the next season, the Swans have already started their pursuit to get a viable replacement for Sigurdsson this summer.
Through Swansea coach Paul Clement is making the hardest of efforts to make the Iceland international stay back at the club, repeated enquiries from Everton makes it quite difficult for Sigurdsson to play another season at the Liberty Stadium.
Reportedly, the Frenchman has got eyes on quite a few players to be brought into the side for the next term, with the name of the Belgian midfielder Nacer Chadli on the top of the target list. The winger is currently playing for fellow Premier League club West Bromwich Albion and is known for his pace and prowess in the middle of the pitch.
The 28-year-old joined the Baggies in 2016 and has been one of the most valuable players for them since his arrival at the club. He has played 32 matches so far for his new side and has scored five goals in them to show for his efforts. He also contributed with five assists for his teammates, letting them score goals and keep his team in an advantage.
Chadli has a vast experience in the Premier League and has played 119 matches in total for Tottenham Hotspur, which can be capitalised on by the Swans if they are able to get a hand on this prized possession.
Though the player has spent only a single season at the Hawthorns, he has shown great composure in the middle of the field and has become an integral part of their lineup. The man in charge at West Bromwich Albion, Tony Pulis, has already declared that he will not let go of the Belgian in the next term. However, it is now to be seen if Swansea can get them to sell when they splash the money they get from Sigurdsson’s sale this summer.
