Gylfi Sigurdsson to Everton transfer deal close, confirms Ronald Koeman

Gylfi Sigurdsson

Koeman has emphasised the importance of getting his three remaining targets; Swansea City attacker Gylfi Sigurdsson, a centre forward and a left-sided defender.

The Iceland worldwide has been linked with a move to Goodison Park all summer, with both the Toffees and Leicester having had £40m bids rejected by Swansea, who value the player at £50m.

Everton have had a £40m bid rejected for the Iceland midfielder, 27.

Sigurdsson has not played since Swansea's opening pre-season game against Barnet on July 12, after which he missed the club's tour to the United States as he was "not feeling in the right frame of mind".

There has been renewed contact between the clubs with Swansea seeking £50 million, including add-ons, for the Iceland global who is top of Ronald Koeman's wanted list.

Jarrod Kanizay said his son arrived home with what "looked like a war injury" and that his legs would not stop bleeding. They are tiny carnivorous crustaceans which feed on dead marine creatures, which includes whales and even sea birds.

He was again missing for the Premier League side's impressive 4-0 victory over Sampdoria at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday, their last friendly ahead of the new season.

The Everton boss added: "The reason that he wasn't in the squad is that he was not fit to play today".

Sigurdsson is expected to seal a move to Goodison Park this summer despite the Welsh club's insistence on a sale only when his £50 million asking price is met.

"I have heard that rumour every day since I joined Swansea", Clement said of the Blues' reported Llorente pursuit.

The Toffees have been after the former Tottenham man all summer, as part of a huge transfer splurge that has seen them sign Davy Klaassen, Michael Keane, Jordan Pickford and Sandro.
