Everton have assist machine as major summer target, £30m winter offer rejected

Gylfi Sigurdsson is a bit a cult hero here in the Transfer Tavern, with punters having long respected his silky playing style and eye for spectacular goals, so the Liverpool Echo’s report that Everton are keen on him ahead of the summer has excited Toffees followers up by the bar.

It’s understood that the Icelandic playmaker was a target for the Merseyside club last summer but a £28m approach was knocked back by Swansea.

The Swans remained steadfast in the desire to keep hold of Sigurdsson through the winter window, even rejecting a £30m offer from a Chinese Super League side, but the Liverpool Echo claim Everton are keen to try again at the end of the season.

Should the Liberty Stadium outfit succumb to relegation, luring the creative ace, who has 11 Premier League assists to his name this season, to Goodison Park may be an easier task for Ronald Koeman’s side, but it’s understood that the 27-year-old has been impressed with Paul Clement’s start to life as Swansea boss, so he may indeed stay if they remain in the top tier.

Gylfi Sigurdsson needs to leave Swansea to progress – agree?
