Everton FC will need £50 million bid to sign Gylfi Sigurdsson
Everton in hot pursuit of Sigurdsson although second bid worth £45 million rejected
July 25th, 2017
Everton have been splashing the cash this summer to create a new-look squad although it appears they are ready to take their spending north of the £100 million mark.
Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen and Michael Keane are some of the big money arrivals at Goodison Park, although the Merseyside club are eager to add more quality in the form of Gylfi Sigurdsson.
The Icelandic international has shone for Swansea City in the past couple of seasons and Ronald Koeman clearly feels as though Sigurdsson’s skill and set piece delivery can help the Toffees challenge the top six clubs in the Premier League.
However, the Welsh club remain adamant that they will accept no less than £50 million for Sigurdsson, with Everton’s latest bid only amounting to £45 million after previously having an initial offer of £40 million rejected.
It appears the player is ready to move to Everton after pulling out of Swansea’s pre-season tour of America although it is down to the former to up their bid.
