FC Twente winger Nacer Chadli will reject the overtures of Shakhtar Donetsk to wait for a move to the Premier League amid reported interest from Liverpool.
The 23-year-old is eager to secure a move away from Holland this summer after three seasons in the Eredivisie, with a host of European names linked with his signature.
Ukrainian champions Shakhtar have moved first in their attempt to sign Chadli, who struck 12 goals in 17 league appearances for Twente last campaign, but the free scoring winger would appear to have his heart set on joining the growing Belgian contingent in the Premier League.
"It is hard to choose Ukraine this early in the transfer window, when everyone around him wants to see him play on a Saturday in the Premier League, a competition he wants to go to really bad," Chandli's agent Daniel Evrard told Dutch publication De Telegraaf.
"It is not easy for a player to take the right decision. Financially Shakhtar was very interesting and then it's hard to stay patient. But Chandli doesn't want to rush things.
"He wants to start the pre-season at his new club, but I'm not ruling out that he will start at FC Twente at the beginning of July. English clubs often buy players in the last stages of the window."
This isn't the first time Chadli's agent has publically discussed his client's ambition to move to England, declaring the winger could potentially sacrifice playing in the Champions League next season in order to move to a Premier League club earlier this month.
Brendan Rodgers' side, in addition to Tottenham Hotspur, have been credited with keen interest in the Belgian, and will have been boosted by such comments given Spurs' lack of Champions League football next campaign and Liverpool's omission from any European football over the next year.
With his current contract with Twente set to expire next summer, Chadli is expected to leave the Dutch club for as modest fee, with De Telegraaf suggesting a fee of €12m may be enough to secure his services.
