Swansea City have denied that a £25m transfer fee has been agreed with Everton for playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson.
“There has been no contact between Swansea City and Everton. As far as the owners, the chairman and the manager are concerned, they want to keep Swansea City’s best players.”
Sigurdsson is believed to be one of West Ham’s priority summer transfer targets after a hugely influential season playing for the Welsh side. The 27 year old scored 10 goals and provided 13 assists in 40 appearances in all competitions, playing an instrumental role in the club’s escape from relegation.
Despite Swansea’s desire to keep the playmaker, they will find it hard to keep hold of a player who is in such demand from other Premier League clubs.
Irrespective of the false rumours, it is clear that Everton do remain interested in the playmaker, having previously pursued the Sigurdsson last summer before the midfielder signed a new three year contract. Newcastle, Tottenham and Southampton have also been linked with bids in recent months.
