Everton reportedly have to splash £30million to sign top target

Swansea have reportedly informed Everton that should they wish to sign Gylfi Sigurdsson, they must pay at least £30 million.

Sigurdsson was one of the standout players for the Swans this past season and helped the club avoid relegation. However, he will now be keen for a new challenge with a club with bigger ambitions.

The Icelandic star managed to bag nine goals and record 13 assists while helping Paul Clements side to avoid relegation last term.

Though West Ham, Leicester and Southampton are also interested in signing the Iceland international, Everton are said to be leading the race to sign him and have been keen for the past several months.

Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins recently admitted that Sigurdsson could be leaving the club this summer by saying, “It’s hard to suggest what sort of value Gylfi has in today’s market but to us he is priceless and we’ve got to make sure we do everything in our power to make sure he stays.”
