Everton close on Gylfi Sigurdsson

Everton close on Gylfi Sigurdsson

Swansea City manager Paul Clement has stated that the standoff between the Welsh side and Everton over Gylfi Sigurdsson's future remains and that there has been no progression over a potential summer deal.

Young forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin's fine finish secured Everton's passage into the Europa League play-off round, in which they will face Croatian outfit Hajduk Split, but Koeman knows that he can not fully rely on the England Under-20 starlet and must fill the void left by Romelu Lukaku, who joined Manchester United in a deal worth £90m last month.

Everton failed with an opening £40m bid for Sigurdsson.

When asked if he still planned to sign a striker after Everton's 1-nil victory over Ruzomberok in the Europa League qualifiers 2nd leg, Koeman said, "We need two more front players because if you count the players and count the numbers, we lost somebody and we brought somebody in".

Swansea value their midfielder at £50m.

He has been linked with Watford and Koeman said: 'The reason that he wasn't in the squad is that he was not fit to play today.

"I have heard that rumour every day since I joined Swansea", Clement said of the Blues' reported Llorente pursuit.

The Merseyside outfit have been quite busy so far this summer and have made a number of signings, including forward Wayne Rooney, defender Michael Keane and goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

Swansea star Gylfi Sigurdsson is "close" to completing a transfer to Goodison Park this summer, but the deal is yet to be finalised.
