Everton are reportedly close to signing Swansea City's attacking midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Everton are reportedly edging closer to signing their top summer target Gylfi Sigurdsson in the next few days.

According to reports from The Mirror, the Toffees will finally seal his move in the next few days. The player will get the “green light” to complete his move to Merseyside.

Everton will reportedly pay a transfer fee in the region of £50 million for the services of Sigurdsson, who scored nine Premier League goals last season for the Swans.

The Iceland international, who has 50 national appearances under his belt, has been a top target for Ronald Koeman this season, and his transfer has been dragged due to Swansea sourcing a replacement.

His addition to an already impressive Everton squad will make Koeman’s side an outside contender for a top four finish this season.

Most importantly, Sigurdsson’s arrival will open the door for Tottenham to make their long awaited move for Everton midfielder Ross Barkley.

The Mirror adds that Swansea will now make a £20 million move for West Bromwich Albion’s attacking midfielder Nacer Chadli.
