Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur are set to lock horns once again as they battle for the signature of FC Twente winger Nacer Chadli, reports talkSPORT.

The 23-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from the Eredivisie this summer, as a host of top European clubs prepare bids for his signature.

Juventus, Borussia Dortmund and Shakhtar Donetsk are all believed to be consider offers for the Belgium international - who scored 12 league goals for Twente in 2012/13 - with the opportunity to play Champions League football high on the player's agenda.

However, according to Chadli's agent, Daniel Evrard, he is willing to snub their advances  in favour of a switch to the Premier League, despite the fact neither Liverpool or Spurs will be involved in Europe's elite club competition next season.

"Nacer wants to play in the Champions League, but he is also attracted by English football. We expect something from this angle," Evrard told De Telegraaf.

Andre Villas-Boas will be hoping to get one over Brendan Rodgers again, just like he did when securing the services of Clint Dempsey and Gylfi Sigurdsson last summer.

Both players were on the radars of Tottenham and Liverpool, and both came to the same decision that White Hart Lane instead of Anfield would be better for their long-term futures.

Spurs also have a Belgian contingent of Mousa Dembele and Jan Vertonghen to call upon to help convince Chadli to choose north London over Merseyside.
