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.

Why not liverpool manager did not sign him immediately. what was the need of showing courtesy and becoming diplomatic. If we can pay more than 60000 to Henderson, Downing, Adam, Cole, Aqualani and many other null and void than why not to this fellow. After all he has some class and attitude. We must not allow spur to grab this boy from us even we have to pay more than 70000 to him. We are a big club and club like spur can'nt dare to humilate us.

Good time for Rodgers to go on his holidays. Hope he's having fun now, because he won't be next season after missing out on his top targets! Borini, Gylfi...

Liverpool is well known for slowliness. Many fans said that it is because of stupidity of the club staff. I don't have anything to say because I completely agree with those fans. I accept that the club is full of stupid staff members who are slow and have poor eyes in signing new players.
