Everton fans believe that Kieran Dowell’s move to Nottingham Forest is a sign that they have wrapped up a deal for Swansea City’s Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Everton have sanctioned a deal which will see Dowell leave Goodison Park to join Forest for the season.
The youngster has been on the fringes of the Toffees’ first-team, but it seems that Ronald Koeman has decided that Dowell’s development would be better served going out on loan.
And Everton fans believe that Dowell would only have been let go, if Koeman had another signing coming in.
With Dowell goin out could tha mean someone is due in. Similar position to gylfi. I know he needs game time. But surely a good backup atm— Der Ketwig Kaiser (@DerKetwigKaiser) August 1, 2017

Allowing Dowell to go probably means Gylfi is on the way, might be reading too much into it though— Paddock View (@Paddock_View) August 2, 2017
Surely sigurdsson is in the bag if were loaning dowell out— Schneidergueye (@schneidergueye) August 1, 2017
In letting dowell go I'm thinking the sigurdsson transfer may not be too far away— Nick Willo (@nickwillo4efc) August 1, 2017
Yes gotta be done now? Think he'll do well there? NSNO— hratefc (@Hrat20) August 1, 2017
Everton have been chasing Sigurdsson for much of the summer so far, but his price-tag has proved difficult to reach.
If Sigurdsson did move to Goodison Park, he would significantly strengthen Everton’s attacking options for the upcoming campaign.
