Swansea playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson has declared he would like to play for “big club” during an interview with

The Iceland international has been linked once again to West Ham by the Mirror, and the 27 year old latest comments will fan the flames that a move away from the Liberty stadium is likely in the summer:

“Of course, it would be a dream to play for one of these big clubs. Hopefully if I continue doing well for Swansea and Iceland then in the near future, I can play in a big club.”

Sigurdsson moved to Swansea from Tottenham in 2014 with Ben Davies moving in the other direction. West Ham did make a bid for the Icelandic star in January, according to the Mirror, as they looked to replace Dimitri Payet, but their offer was rejected by the Welsh club.

Everton also continue to hold an interest in the midfielder. Manager Ronald Koeman tried to sign the player last summer before Sigurdsson signed a new contract but there looks to be more urgency now from the Toffees with current playmaker Ross Barkley yet to sign a new deal.

Sigurdsson has been in excellent form with nine goals and 11 assists coming in 31 matches in all competitions this season.
