Everton target Gylfi Sigurdsson has been warned by current manager Paul Clement that transfers can often backfire.
After a series of impressive performances played a crucial role in Swansea avoiding relegation this season, the 27-year-old has reportedly attracted the interest of a number of clubs including Everton.
Clement said of the Iceland international’s situation, “He has a lot of ambition and I can understand that. But it didn’t work out for him at Tottenham. He cannot have another situation like he had there.”
Everton are said to be willing £25 million for Sigurdsson and as the midfield star is currently at the prime of his career, he is likely to join the Toffees.
The Merseyside club will also offer him the prospect of Europa League football. With uncertainty over the future of Ross Barkley, it is also easy to see Sigurdsson gaining regular first team football next season. Everton would be a good fit for him despite the warning from Clement.
