Reports: Swansea reject big £45m offer from Everton

Swansea City continue to play hardball over Gylfi Sigurdsson, insisting on a price tag of £50m according to reports.

Everton have long been linked with the star midfielder, apparently failing with a £25m bid a year ago, and are said to have made two bids this summer, the latest around £45m. The Welsh club are saying this is the first offer and it was £40m, presumably meaning the remaining £5m was in the form of appearance-related add-ons.

The astronomical fee for the 28-year-old has been turned down, however, if the latest indications from the media are correct and it seems as though the Blues will have to meet the Swans' asking price if they are to land their next transfer target.

Sigurdsson, who had a spell with Tottenham Hotspur, was reported to have made known his desire to return to a big English club earlier this year but doesn't appear to be agitating for a move from the Liberty Stadium.
