Gylfi Sigurdsson & Everton
Will this transfer finally be completed on Wednesday?
Gylfi Sigurdsson has been tipped to leave Swansea for Everton all summer, and there were big developments on Tuesday night.
According to the BBC, Everton and Swansea have agreed terms for Gylfi Sigurdsson’s move to Goodison Park.
The deal will be worth about £45 million, while Sigurdsson’s medical will take on Wednesday.
The signing of Sigurdsson will take Everton’s spending for the summer close to the £150m mark.
Koeman has already splashed out nearly £100m on the likes of Davy Klaassen, Jordan Pickford, Michael Keane and Sandro Ramirez, while Wayne Rooney and Cuco Martina joined on free transfers.
All that comes with the caveat that Everton did lose their best player this summer after Romelu Lukaku joined Manchester United. On Tuesday night, Gareth Barry completed his move to West Brom.
Tottenham profit from Sigurdsson
Sigurdsson joined Swansea from Tottenham in 2014.
Tottenham inserted a sell-on clause when they did the deal with the Welsh club, as confirmed by the BBC. That clause entitles Tottenham to 10% of Everton’s transfer fee for the Icelandic international.
Working on the assumption Sigurdsson will join Everton for £45 million, that means Tottenham will receive £4.5 million from the Toffees.
