The Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern are desperate for their next game…
It has been a stellar summer for the Toffees, and with an opening day victory against Stoke City now behind them, things are looking very good indeed.
They have received another massive boost this week, too, with Everton confirming the arrival of midfielder Gyfli Sigurdsson on their official website.
A top player, the Icelandic international has been the star of the show at Swansea for a few years now, and a move up to a side like Everton was always seen as a natural progression.
Ian Wright has had his say on the move, and it’s safe to say that he thinks Everton have made an incredible move.
Describing the 27-year-old as one of the Premier League’s best, he said: “Sigurdsson for me, outside of the top 5, is easily the best player”.

With Everton now keen to break the Chelsea, Man City, Man Utd, Arsenal, Liverpool and Tottenham monopoly, Wright clearly feels like they have got the best player to help them with that quest.
It’s hard to disagree with Wright here.
Sigurdsson is undoubtedly a top talent, and he was wasted at a side like Swansea. He deserves to be playing European football, and he could well be the player to continue to deliver it to the Goodison Park faithful going forward.
