Sigurdsson was a stand-out aspect of Swansea's successful battle against relegation last season and has also reportedly been interesting his former club, Tottenham.

While that deal places Rooney among the top earners at Everton, it is actually less than what Sigurdsson could earn. With Sigurdsson still having three years left on his current contract, and not openly claiming he wants to leave the Liberty, Swansea can request any money they like for a player that they don't want to see leave SA1 this summer.

Sigurdsson took the Swans by surprise when he came out and publicly said it was "down to the club if they want to sell [him]" at the end of the season.

It's possible that no one is willing to meet the exorbitant demands by Swansea, keeping Sigurdsson exactly where he is - something that the 27-year-old seems perfectly happy to do.

Koeman re-signed England's record goalscorer Wayne Rooney from Manchester United on Sunday and spent a potential £30m each on centre-back Michael Keane from Burnley and goalkeeper Jordan Pickford from relegated Sunderland.

Leicester have also been strongly linked with Sigurdsson, particularly as Riyad Mahrez's future has been in doubt after the Algeria worldwide expressed his desire to leave the King Power Stadium.

Swansea have recruited well so far this summer, signing highly-rated Chelsea forward Tammy Abraham on loan as well as Las Palmas midfielder Roque Mesa as part of their new setup driven by data analyst Daniel Altman.
