Swansea City played out a lacklustre draw against Southampton in their opening fixture this weekend, with both teams missing an array of chances to score. The Swans looked nothing more than ordinary in their first game, as they are looking to refrain from repeating their disappointing performance from the last season, that saw them finish in the 15th position in the league table.

One issue, which has been a major concern for the Welsh club in the recent situation is the availability of their main man in the team, Gylfi Sigurdsson, whose heroics saved the season in the last term for the Swans. However, a move away from the Liberty Stadium is looking imminent for the Icelandic midfielder, with fellow Premier League club Everton in the calling to include him in their roster for this season.

With almost no hope to tie down their talisman for the next season, the Welsh outfit has already started their search for a viable replacement. Among a number of names that have come up as an option to be used in the team in place of Sigurdsson in the team, the one on the top of the list is that of his former teammate from Tottenham and present West Bromwich Albion player Nacer Chadli.

The Belgian attacker has been one of the mainstays in the midfield for the Baggies and has played in 32 matches for them so far since joining in 2016. He has displayed an array of skills coupled with great pace on the pitch and has helped his colleagues to score goals with crucial assists as well as putting the ball past the opponent keeper on five occasions so far.

The Swans are well aware of the fact that the Belgian attacker is a player of great importance for the Baggies and has been playing in a very crucial role in the attack, providing important passes and crosses. However, the Welsh side need to try their level best to get the player in their team for the new season, with the move of their Icelandic midfielder out of the Liberty Stadium soon to become a reality.

Recently, the 28-year-old fell out with his club manager Tony Pulis and he was left out of their pre-season tour to Austria. This has irked interest among a number of clubs, especially Swansea City, who are looking to take advantage of the situation and get the player in the team for the new season.
