Gylfi Sigurdsson's future with Swansea still in doubt

Gylfi Sigurdsson

Swansea boss Paul Clement said after the Barnet match that the Welsh side do not want to sell Gylfi Sigurdsson, but there is a "business side to football".

Leicester City have also pursued Sigurdsson over recent weeks and it was their own failed £40m offer that led the BBC to report that Swansea were holding out for a fee of £50m.

Everton recently submitted an offer of around £40 million, which Swansea were quick to reject.

The offer has not been accepted by Swansea, but Sigurdsson has withdrawn from Swansea's pre-season tour to the United States and headed back to Wales.

No fan likes to see things come to an end like this, with Everton themselves very recently being on the receiving end of a similar strong-arm tactic from Romelu Lukaku as he tried to ensure a transfer.

Sigurdsson did play in Wednesday's pre-season loss against Barnet, and even captained the side in the second half, as he has done before in the Premier League.

Swansea City's owners say they will "not be bullied" into selling midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson below their £50m asking price.

"I don't know how people are going to behave in the future".

The Toffees are said to have an agreement already in place with the player regarding a deal.

Sigurdsson is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and played well for Swansea during the 2016-17 campaign.

Sigurdsson joined Swansea from Tottenham Hotspur in the summer of 2014, and has scored 37 times in 128 appearances for the club.

Swansea also encouraged their most influential player to reconsider his decision not to join the USA tour and, in echoes of Southampton's reaction to Liverpool's pursuit of Virgil van Dijk, suggested Everton may have contravened Premier League rules with an illegal approach to Sigurdsson.
