Tottenham winger Nacer Chadli is ready to leave White Hart Lane on loan before the end of the month in a bid to save his World Cup ambitions.
The Belgian ace signed for the London club over the summer from FC Twente, but has failed to establish himself as a first-team regular under Andre Villas-Boas and now manager Tim Sherwood.
This has led to rumours that he may head away from Spurs, with the 2014 World Cup on the horizon.
Belgium have a wealth of talented attack-minded players, and Chadli is aware that he faces a battle to earn a spot in his nation’s 23-man squad.
In a bid to make sure he is on the plane to Brazil in a few months’ time, the 24-year-old’s agent, Daniel Evrard, says that a loan move away from Tottenham is a possibility:
“His situation is not easy at Tottenham at the moment,” he is quoted by the Daily Star.
“The World Cup is arriving so it’s a problem.
“For him to play at the World Cup it’s important so why not a loan?
“We haven’t spoken to Tottenham yet but I know there are clubs interested in him.
“There are a lot of players in the same situation who are not in the team and they want to play inthe World Cup so there is a market for a lot of clubs.
“It’s important for him not to take any risks by going to a country he doesn’t know well.
“It’s very difficult for him because we’ve not seen the best of him at Tottenham. He has big potential so he is a little bit frustrated.”
