Ronald Koeman believes Everton are finally close to sealing a deal for one of their top summer targets, Gylfi Sigurdsson.

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.

Everton have been linked with a host of forwards during the summer, but is understood that Arsenal's Giroud tops Koeman's wishlist.

Clement has stated that there have been no breakthrough in negotiations between the Premier League clubs and that the situation remains the same.

Clement has not ruled out bringing new players in but said it is "more than likely we'll go into the first game as we are", when they start their campaign at Southampton on Saturday, 12 August.


Swansea star Gylfi Sigurdsson is "close" to completing a transfer to Goodison Park this summer, but the deal is yet to be finalised.

The Iceland worldwide was omitted from his side's final pre-season friendly with Sampdoria on Saturday as he sought to resolve his Liberty Stadium future.

"But he is training every day with the squad and if the situation changes he is going to be ready for us". "All parties would like it resolved", the Swansea boss told Sky Sports.

After the match, Koeman insisted there is still plenty of work to be done in this transfer window, as he eyes three more signings.

Clement would surely prefer to keep Sigurdsson at the Liberty Stadium but should the former Tottenham Hotspur man be sold it will free up funds for the Welsh side to reinforce their squad elsewhere.
