Swansea City's Gylfi Sigurdsson may opt to stay with the club this summer.
Swansea City's Gylfi Sigurdsson
According to the Liverpool Echo, Swansea City star Gylfi Sigurdsson is unsure about a move away this summer having endured a tough time at Tottenham – and Everton could be quoted £35million for his signature anyway, report the Daily Mail.
Whilst Swansea have endured a difficult season this term, reliable playmaker Sigurdsson has continued to produce, notching an impressive eight goals and 11 assists in the Premier League.
The Icelandic international has been Swansea's shining light this season, again proving that he's one of the Premier League's best and most underrated players with yet another superb campaign, having also grabbed 11 goals and three assists last season.
Unsurprisingly though, Sigurdsson's exploits have attracted great interest; the Liverpool Echo report that, having failed with one move already, Everton boss Ronald Koeman still want to land Sigurdsson, but faces a real battle.
The report claims that Sigurdsson has not only enjoyed working under Paul Clement at the Liberty Stadium, but he also isn't sure about leaving the club having chosen a move to Tottenham in 2012 after impressing on loan with Swansea – a switch that didn't work out well for the playmaker.
Whereas Sigurdsson smashed seven goals and three assists in a brief loan spell with Swansea in 2012, he struggled to nail down a spot at Tottenham, and ended up re-joining Swansea in 2014, rectifying his mistake.
Swansea City's Gylfi Sigurdsson in action
Sigurdsson is now believed to be cautious about turning his back on the Swans again and would take serious convincing to make a move, though Everton's position may be aided if Swansea suffer relegation to the Championship.
Add in that the Daily Mail claim that Swansea want a whopping £35million for Sigurdsson, and it currently seems unlikely that the 27-year-old will be making a big summer move, with Sigurdsson seemingly settled in South Wales again.
That situation could change in the coming months, but with Sigurdsson allegedly happy with Swansea and anxious about trading in his star status in South Wales for a potentially lesser role elsewhere, Everton may well be better off turning their attentions elsewhere.
