It’s been quite the summer for the Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern, who simply can’t believe just how well Ronald Koeman has done in the market thus far.
A whole host of new signings – including a certain Wayne Rooney – have arrived at Goodison Park and optimism really is abound ahead of next season under the Dutchman’s steady watch.
So, reports from the Daily Mirror have only furthered the excitement today, as they claim Swansea City star Gylfi Sigurdsson is expected to join the Toffees’ revolution. A £40m bid for the Iceland star is understood to have been snubbed, though this report suggests a deal could go through.
The 27-year-old will reportedly be handed a contract on the same level as the aforementioned Rooney, who apparently rakes in a cool £150k-per-week on Merseyside. That’d be a huge increase on the reported £80k-per-week he earns in South Wales.
Leicester City are another party who are thought to retain an interest in former Tottenham man, though Everton’s offer is said to blow their’s out of the water, in what has been a crazy transfer window thus far.
With Ross Barkley’s future up in the air, our resident Toffees pray Sigurdsson arrives to take his place.
