The Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern have mixed opinions on whether Koeman should splash the cash on Swansea’s Icelandic midfielder.
Paul Clement and Swansea City have slapped a £50 million price tag on their Icelandic superstar, Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Let’s face it, Sigurdsson is a big fish in a small pond. He’s a whale in a goldfish bowl.
A fantastic player and if Everton could sign him, it would be one of the signings of the season, just not for £50 million. In modern football, a price tag isn’t just determined by how good a player is, clubs also take into account how important that player is to the club’s success.
To reiterate, without Sigurdsson, Swansea have no one who could grab the team by the scruff of the neck and keep them in the Premier League, like the attacking midfielder does.
It is understandable that due to that fact, Swansea may try and make teams over pay for him a bit, but their valuation of the player is just ridiculous.
14 years ago, David Beckham signed for Real Madrid from Man United for £25 million.
Even in today’s money that works out at about £37 million for one of our countries greatest ever talents, and Swansea want £50 million for Sigurdsson?
It is ridiculous and given the signings Everton have already made this transfer window, do they really need to spend that much to get yet another attacking midfielder?
It just doesn’t make sense to our landlord and he reckons they’ll be better off saving their money, or investing that money elsewhere in their squad.
Swansea will regret their stubbornness soon, even £30 million reinvested in their team could be a big help to them next season.
