Swansea reject £27m bid for Gylfi Sigurdsson from Everton

Swansea reject £27m bid for Gylfi Sigurdsson from Everton”

Reports suggest that Swansea City have turned down a £27m bid from Everton for highly-rated midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson.

However, Everton and his former side Tottenham have both been strongly linked with a move for the Iceland worldwide and reports suggest that he may be tempted by the prospect of playing European football.

As reported by the Mirror, Everton remain interested in signing Sigurdsson, who is seen as a possible replacement for Ross Barkley, with the 23-year-old's future still unresolved.

Only Kevin de Bruyne and Christian Eriksen made more assists than his 13 in the Premier League last season and it is that creativity and deadly shooting ability combined with his clever runs into the box that stand him out from most in his position in the top flight.

Everton have also signed Davy Klaassen from Ajax for £23.6 million while Sandro Ramirez is on his way too.

Sigurdsson is still a target for Everton after he produced some excellent performances in the Premier League last season - he created 72 chances and scored nine goals.

Swans chairman Huw Jenkins insisted last week his star player would only depart if the Welsh club received an offer they could not refuse.

They have been told to increase their offer for Sigurdsson after a £30million bid failed.

"There's been interest in him before - there were some pretty big enquiries about him last summer and in the January window - but we didn't want to sell him then and we don't want to sell him now".
