West Brom are plotting a late-window move for Tottenham outcast Nacer Chadli, according to a report.
The Sun report that Baggies manager Tony Pulis is planning a £12million swoop for the Belgium international winger.
The Mirror claimed earlier this month that Spurs placed a £20million price tag on the 27-year-old, who cost them £7million from Swansea in 2013.
The report detailed that former club Swansea and Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund were believed to be interested in the winger, but neither club were willing to spend over the odds on Chadli.
Chadli has fallen down the pecking order at Spurs and is deemed surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane.
Senior players Christian Eriksen, Dele Alli and Erik Lamela have been the preferred options in Mauricio Pochettino’s side, with summer signing Vincent Janssen being slowly introduced into the first-team.
With Spurs open to selling the attacker, West Brom may be keen to bolster a struggling attacking set-up.
Last season only relegated Aston Villa scored fewer goals than the Midlands club as West Brom scored just 34 goals in 38 league games.
Chadli starred in 40 encounters for Mauricio Pochettino’s side last season in all competitions scoring seven goals and providing five assists.
He has also made 32 appearances for Belgium, featuring four times at the World Cup in 2014 as the Red Devils were knocked out in the quarter-finals by Argentina.
In other Tottenham transfer news, they have been installed as favourites to sign a Real Madrid star.
