Liverpool remain hopeful of beating Tottenham to Sigurdsson
Liverpool have not given up on signing Iceland midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson despite reports Tottenham Hotspur have moved into the driver’s seat to bring the former Swansea City loan player to the Premier League on a full-time basis, the BBC has said.
Spurs will reportedly offer Sigurdsson higher wages than he would receive at Anfield but the presence of former Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers in the Liverpool dugout could still prove a decisive factor. Not only did Sigurdsson play under Rodgers at Swansea but the pair were together at Reading, the club Sigurdsson left to move to Hoffenheim.
Sigurdsson had been ready to move to Swansea on a permanent deal until Rodgers took up the chance to replace Kenny Dalglish on Merseyside. It then appeared Sigurdsson would follow suit until Tottenham’s interest became known, with the two clubs now fighting it out for the £8m-rated 22-year-old, who scored seven goals in 18 games for Swansea.
