Swansea and Everton hope to end Gylfi Sigurdsson transfer saga 'soon'

Koeman said earlier in the summer that he expected the England global to move on, with Tottenham Hotspur having been linked with him amid reports that Everton wanted a fee of between £40 million and £50m.

Everton, who are leading the chase for his signature ahead of interest from Newcastle United, Leicester City and Southampton, were reported to consider spending £50m - his valuation by Swansea - to bring him to Goodison Park but the Welsh side's willingness to negotiate has changed the picture.

Ross Barkley could stay at Everton with no offers now on the table, says Ronald Koeman.

"I spoke about "soon" last weekend".

Swansea City's Gylfi Sigurdsson applauds the fans at the end of their Premier League match vs West Bromwich Albion at Liberty Stadium, May 21, 2017.

"There likely needs to be a compromise on both sides and that is normally how a deal is made".

Three Arsenal stars could miss Premier League opener
Arsenal , who finished fifth in the league last season, host Leicester City in the opening game of their campaign on Friday. PSG had a wanted list at the start of the season with three names on it, Neymar , Alexis and Kylian Mbappe .

" One of the reasons I don't want to talk about other names is because unless something is done with Gylfi's situation there is no point saying anything", Clement said.

Asked if Everton have the firepower needed to achieve their aims this season, Koeman said: "Not yet because as everybody knows we're still working on some targets and that's hard". Maybe the club will not accept the offer [if and when it comes] because he is a good, young, English player. "We need to find productivity from other players, we brought players like [Davy] Klaassen and Sandro Ramirez, but we need others".

"It is always a game between the selling club and the buying club, but we are close and let's hope we get an agreement as soon as possible".

Swansea have lined up potential transfer targets if, as expected, Sigurdsson does move to Merseyside before the transfer window closes at the end of August.

"All the players have had a good attitude in pre-season and they are very focused". And the best XI will start the game. "Let's wait, we're not in hurry but we finally hope to do a deal".
