Having already shaken up his squad with a number of high-profile signings, Ronald Koeman is now expected to win the race for Swansea’s in-demand star
After scoring 10 goals and assisting 13 more in a Swansea City side that narrowly avoided relegation last season, Gylfi Sigurdsson is one of the hottest prospects in this summer’s Premier League transfer window.
Front of the queue for the Iceland international’s services are Everton, Paddy Power’s 4/6 (1.67) favourites to lure him away from the Liberty Stadium after three years in South Wales. Having already signed Sandro Ramirez, Michael Keane, Jordan Pickford, Davy Klaassen and Henry Onyekuru so far this summer, Ronald Koeman is clearly intent on rebuilding a squad that struggled to challenge for the top six last season.
With Riyad Mahrez looking to leave and money from last season’s Champions League foray in their pocket, Leicester City are on offer at 9/1 (10.00) to steal a march on Everton and Tottenham with a shock move. Southampton will also not be short on funds should they choose to cash in on the in-demand Virgil Van Dijk, and can be backed at 12/1 (13.00) to win the race for Sigurdsson’s signature. Finally, West Ham and Arsenal are both available at 25/1 (26.00) to lure the former Spurs man back to London, while Manchester City are a 40/1 (41.00) shot to orchestrate a move up north.
