Liverpool fans provided a mixed reaction to Everton's record signing.

 

Gylfi Sigurdsson has clinched his long awaited move from Swansea City to Everton for a club record fee.

The Toffees paid £45 million for the Iceland international, a sign of their growing financial strength which has already been on show this transfer window.

The £45 million is more spent on one player than rivals Liverpool have spent in total this transfer window, with just Mohamed Salah and Andrew Robertson signed for a combined £44 million.

While Everton have lost top scorer Romelu Lukaku, they have been active in the transfer market all summer, signing players able to contribute in all areas of the side.

Everton are hoping to break into the top six this year and mount a serious challenge for a Champions League place.

Adding Sigurdsson, one of the Premier League's most productive players will only help them out.

Liverpool meanwhile are scrambling to hold onto key player Coutinho amid strong interest from La Liga giants Barcelona.

Reds fans had a mixed reaction to Everton's record capture, with some critical, others jealous, and more upset that Everton's record signing is now bigger than Liverpool's.
