Everton Are After This Swansea Star Again: Why Koeman Has To Ensure They Get Him This Time

Gylfi Sigurdsson was the very first target of Ronald Koeman when the Dutch manager made his switch from Everton to Southampton but the poster boy of Icelandic football made it known to Koeman that he was very happy at the Liberty Stadium. Koeman is tipped to make another approach for the Iceland international’s signature in January as per The Telegraph and he feels that Swansea’s poor run of form this season will make Sigurdsson change his mind.

Everton had a pretty decent start to the Koeman era but there is a big room for improvement. They lack a player who stands out from the rest and Sigurdsson could be that exemplary creator for them. The season Swansea are having, there is a big chance that they will not remain in the Premier League next season. If Everton are willing to offer him a way out of his predicament, it’s unlikely he’ll say no again.

Sigurdsson has been an experienced Premier League campaigner over the years and has what it takes to make a big difference at Goodison Park. Everton lack a quality playmaker as Ross Barkley has been very inconsistent in that role. There are not many better than Sigurdsson in the number ten role. At Everton, he will be the creative outlet and replace the erratic Barkley who has been pretty inconsistent.

The Icelandic international is known for his brilliant eye for a pass. His passing accuracy this season has been just 74.9% which is poor for a player of his calibre. However, that might be due to the reason that he has played a lot of games in the number nine this season. The 27-year-old has scored five goals and set up six this season from 20 Premier League games.

He has been a prolific player throughout his career and deserves a step up in his career now. Everton are an ambitious club and do have the money to spend. Sigurdsson will have much better players around him unlike at Swansea and this move will be a brilliant one for his career.

Sigurdsson might command a big fee but Everton will not regret spending so much on him. Still only 27, he has a long career ahead of him. If things go according to plan, the Icelandic international could be a massive player at the club.
