Swansea Lining Up £25 Million Transfer For Gylfi Sigurdsson Replacement
| Last updated
Swansea City eventually succumbed to Everton's persistence as they sold Gylfi Sigurdsson for a whopping £45 million, and it appears the Welsh club are wasting no time in finding his replacement.
Everton boss Ronald Koeman continues his summer splurge with the addition of the Iceland midfielder who performed heroics for Swansea, last season.
Sigurdsson played in every Premier League outing weighing in with nine goals from midfield in the process helping them remain in the top flight.

But Everton's gain is Swansea's loss. And reports suggest Paul Clement has identified his replacement.
