Sigurdsson pulls out of Swansea preseason trip as latest Everton bid rejected

Sigurdsson sale possible due to 'business', says Clement

"There is speculation, there are a couple of clubs strongly interested in him, but it's nothing more than that at the moment", said Clement.

It looks like matters have come to a head now between Swansea City and Gylfi Sigurdsson.

It is reported that Swansea are holding out for £50m for the 27-year-old, with Everton's latest bid coming in at around £40m.

Sigurdsson played in a pre-season friendly at Barnet on Wednesday evening, but a City statement the following morning confirmed he would not be travelling to the US.

A transfer of Sigurdsson is very much on the cards this summer.

According to BBC Sport, the Toffees have made a bid of £40 million for the Iceland global midfielder, but it has been rejected as the Swans want £50m for him.

There's a New Sunspot Larger Than Earth
While the sunspot could be a threat to Earth, it also provides a chance for keen photographers to capture rare images of the sun. The new video, shared by NASA yesterday (July 12), offers a model to grasp how distance can distort our comprehension of scale.

The Iceland global played in Wednesday's 1-0 defeat to League Two side Barnet in the first pre-season match but will skip Swansea's three-match tour, which begins with a match against Philadelphia Union on July 15.

"The fans want that, our owners would like that, but we also know that there is a business side to things". I think it's going to be really hard for Swansea to keep hold of him. Clement claimed. "In the summer there was no thought of moving Jack on but it got to a point when another club came in with a really good offer".

Sigurdsson is one of the best midfielders in the Premier League and played well for Swansea during the 2016-17 campaign. That might end up being the case with Gylfi.

While Swansea's chairman has previously said that the club will try to keep hold of its prized assets, the general census is that Sigurdsson will complete a move to Everton once the clubs agree on a fee.

Kaplan and Levien called for Sigurdsson, who joined Swansea from Tottenham for #6.8million in July 2014 and has since scored 30 goals in 112 appearances, to reconsider that decision.
