According to a report in the Telegraph, Everton have made Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson one of their top targets this summer.

Everton are yet to make a big money addition since Ronald Koeman has taken charge, but they are expected to invest heavily in their squad over the coming weeks.

Farhad Moshiri’s investment has provided Everton with a large amount of money to spend.

And the Telegraph claim that Koeman plans to spend some of his vast transfer budget on Sigurdsson.

Swansea want £25 million for the attacking midfielder, but Everton are said to be willing to meet the Welsh side’s asking price.
