Swansea City has tasted some decent form in the last few games and are currently 16th in the points table 3 points off the drop zone. Swansea have a decent squad that deserves to finish far above their current league position and they might end up losing a couple of players even if they managed to stay in the top flight for another season. Out of the many such star at the club, Icelandic international Gylfi Sigurdsson is one who is attracting interest from a couple of Premier League clubs.
The Iceland forward has been playing in the Premier League almost a decade now and has been at the Liberty Stadium for more than two seasons, he has made close to 100 appearances for the Swans, helping his side through thick and thin period. With 8 goals and 11 assists in 28 league games this season, the former Tottenham Hotspur star proved to be one of the most productive player attackers for his side this season. His consistency has not gone unnoticed as per Daily Star, West Ham United have already registered interest in the player whilst ESPN FC reports that Everton are also interested in securing move for the versatile attacker this summer.
It is revealed that he could cost potential suitors around £30m in the summer. Though the price has raised some eyebrows recently, here is why it is nothing surprising, especially in an inflated market like the current one. There will be plenty of football supporters visiting football betting sites placing bets on where the midfielder will ply his trade next season.
Having represented Iceland at every level, Sigurdsson has 48 International senior caps and is one of the most experienced players in the current City’s squad. Sigurdsson is an attacking midfielder who loves to play in the number 10 role. He is also one of the most versatile players in the league. Amazingly, he has played in 7 different positions for his side and has been very impressive in most of them.
A return of 9 goals and 11 assists for a team that was battling relegation just a month ago is a promising effort and there is little reason for him to fail in a slightly more exciting setup. Though he is not the strongest in the air, the 27-year-old is also a threat in set pieces and is a brilliant crosser of the ball. His finishing is right up there with the best while his discipline without the ball is also impressive.
He has many attributes that make him a successful player in England and at his age, he is just entering his Prime as a footballer. It is in these couple of years that a player costs the most and Sigurdsson, who is in dazzling form, at least in this inflated market, deserves every Penny of his £30m valuation.
Do you think the Swansea attacker is worth the money?
