Premier League Transfer News — 22 July 2013

Nacer-Chadli-Fulham-Spurs-2012Tottenham have agreed a £6million deal with FC Twente for Belgium winger Nacer Chadli.

The 23-year-old can play on either flank. The highly-rated Belgium international is expected to sign a five-year-deal with Spurs.

Chadli will join-up with the rest of the Tottenham squad in Hong Kong, should he pass a medical and agree personal terms.

German club Hamburg are chasing Everton striker Nikica Jelavic, according to the Daily Mail. The Croatian striker struggled to find his best form last season, after scoring 11 goals in 16 appearances in his first season at Goodison Park.

Jelavic is believed to be unsettled because of the arrival of striker Arouna Kone from Wigan. Hamburg rate Jelavic at £6million, a similar figure to what Everton paid Rangers to sign the Croatian international in January 2012.

West Ham are looking at resigning former-midfielder Scott Parker from Tottenham. The experienced midfielder joined Spurs when the Hammers were relegated. Parker won English Football of the Year that season and Hammers co-owner David Sullivan has admitted that he would love to sign the midfielder.

Stoke are hoping to bring in Benfica youngster Nelson Oliveira on a season-long loan deal. The 21-year-old is highly-rated and expected to be a star of the future. Cardiff are also interested in the Portuguese starlet, but Stoke currently look favourites to sign the youngster.

Swansea are chasing Espanyol defender Hector Moreno, as a potential replacement for captain Ashley Williams, who is being chased by Arsenal, Everton, and Liverpool. The Swans are believed to have tabled a £5million bid for the centre-back, which has been turned down by the Catalan club.

As of yet nobody has met the Swans £12million valuation of centre-back Williams, which means that Swansea may not pursue the deal to sign Mexican star Moreno.

Will Nikica Jelavic leave Everton this summer?
