After a big week splashing the cash on Sandro Ramirez, Jordan Pickford, and Davy Klaassen, Everton look poised to keep the money train rolling. Everton have been casting admiring glances towards Gylfi Sigurdsson for a while now, and after failing in a bid last summer, they look ready to put their money where their mouth is and launch a renewed bid for the Icelandic attacking midfielder in the coming days according to reports from the Daily Mail.
Leicester City have also been linked to the Icelandic, former Spurs, man this summer but a deal to Goodison Park makes sense with the player looking to step up the Premier League and closer to European football, something Ronald Koeman has been tasked to bring back to the blue side of Mereyside.
Everton are understood to be inching closer to signing the £30million-rated Swansea City attacking midfielder, but according to reports from the Mirror, Swansea City don’t want to sell one of their star players and won’t accept a penny less then £40million this summer. This rise in Sigurdsson’s price will surely test Everton’s determination to sign the play maker. But one thing is for certain. Everton must be willing to break their transfer fee record in order to land the player from Swansea City.
