Everton boss Koeman makes confident Sigurdsson deal claim

Barcelona set to a lodge a £120m for Philippe Coutinho

Everton manager Ronald Koeman is hoping to hear some "good news" regarding the Toffees' pursuit of Swansea City talisman Gylfi Sigurdsson and confirmed that he is still very much in the hunt for a new striker amid links with Arsenal forward Olivier Giroud.

The Iceland worldwide has been linked with a move to Goodison Park all summer, with both the Toffees and Leicester having had £40m bids rejected by Swansea, who value the player at £50m.

The Iceland global has been a target for Everton all summer with the Swans having already knocked back a reported £40million bid.

"But my focus is on the players I'm working with and getting ready for the season".

Swansea are reportedly holding out for a £50million fee for Sigurdsson, with Everton seen as frontrunners in the race to sign him, with Leicester City also in the mix.

"No change since we last spoke".

Swansea's transfer business is on hold until the Sigurdsson situation has been resolved.

"And it is best for everyone that he doesn't play in these [pre-season] games".

Aaron Lennon was absent from the squad for Everton's final pre-season fixture ahead of their Premier League opener against Stoke this Saturday.

That would suggest it could be four signings, including Sigurdsson, so Koeman is facing a busy last few weeks of the transfer window.

However, with continued speculation over Ross Barkley's future at the Merseyside club, the Swansea schemer looks like an excellent potential replacement for the England worldwide.
