Everton on the verge of completing record breaking deal for Gylfi Sigurdsson

Swansea City manager Paul Clement has confirmed that Gylfi Sigurdsson could be making a move to Everton within the next few days.

Everton have certainly made a huge impact in the transfer market so far by acquiring the services of high profile players such as Wayne Rooney, Michael Keane, Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen and Sandro Ramirez for a combined fee close to £100million.

The arrival of so many quality players has significantly strengthened the Everton side and many believe that Ronald Koeman’s men are now outside contenders to break into the top four during the upcoming Premier League campaign.

Despite spending so much already in the transfer window though, Koeman is not done with his business as of yet and the Dutchman has made it no secret of his desire to sign Swansea City attacker Gylfi Sigurdsson, especially as Ross Barkley is all but certain to be leaving Goodison Park this summer.

Everton have made multiple bids for Sigurdsson over the past few weeks but with Swansea holding firm on their whopping £50million valuation of the player, the Toffees have been thus far unsuccessful in their hopes of signing the Icelandic international.

Now in a huge update to Everton’s pursuit of Sigurdsson, Swansea City manager Paul Clement has gone on to reveal that his side is currently in talks with the Toffees and hinted that the potential record breaking transfer could well be completed within the next few days.

Clement said about the negotiations with Everton over Sigurdsson, “Talks are still going on and hopefully we are going to get some news in the next couple of days.

“The deal needs to be the best for all parties involved, we have got a very, very important season coming up. We know what happened last season if you don’t make a good start and we don’t want that to happen again.

“We want to make a good start and everyone wants to know what our squad is going to be going into the first game of the season.”
