According to reports from the Daily Mirror, Everton have had a £30million bid for Gylfi Sigurdsson rejected by Swansea City.
Everton have made a huge signal of intent in the transfer market so far by securing the services of Jordan Pickford and Davy Klaassen for big money and the arrival of the two players has certainly filled the Toffees’ faithful with a lot of optimism.
Despite spending well over £50million on Pickford and Klaassen, Everton are far from done with their business in the market and are now expected to announce the signing of Sandro Ramirez from Malaga for a fee believed to be in the region of around £5.2million following the conclusion of the European Under-21 Championship.
Now Everton boss Ronald Koeman is currently said to be looking to sign a new attacking midfielder and according to reports from various sources, the Toffees have made recruiting Swansea City star Gylfi Sigurdssson a priority.
Sigurdssson enjoyed a stunning campaign with Swansea last term, playing a key role in helping the Swans avoid relegation into the Championship and Everton are now intent on signing the Icelandic international this summer.
In an update from the Daily Mirror, revelations can be made that Everton have already placed a bid of around £30million for Sigurdssson but the offer has been turned down by Swansea as the Welsh side are currently holding out for a higher fee.
Everton do have the financial resources to make an increased bid for Sigurdssson but it remains to be seen at what price Swansea will look to sell their superstar.
