Swansea City boss Paul Clement has urged Gylfi Sigurdsson to think carefully about leaving the club this summer.

Sigurdsson played a key part in helping the Swans retain their Premier League status, and has been linked with big money moves away from the Liberty Stadium, where he is in his second spell.

The Mirror report Everton are ready to offer £25 million for Sigurdsson while West Ham are also interested.

He left Swansea once to sign with Tottenham, where he arrived at a period of instability with managerial changes and player signings, and became second fiddle to Christian Eriksen.

Since returning to Swansea he has become one of the Premier League's most consistent attackers, and at 27 could consider moving once again.

New manager Paul Clement has urged him to avoid a repeat of his Tottenham experience.

He told The Mirror: "He has a lot of ambition and I can understand that. But it didn’t work out for him at Tottenham.

“He cannot have another situation like he had there. He doesn’t want to go somewhere else and find he is in and out of the side.”

Sigurdsson will argue he is a better player now and would stand a better chance of holding down a regular place in a top side.

His case at Everton could ironically be helped out by Tottenham, who are favourites to sign Toffees playmaker Ross Barkley, The Express report.
