  • Gylfi Sigurdsson

Swansea City boss Paul Clement says it is best not to play Gylfi Sigurdsson, although there is still no update on the attacking midfielder's potential move to Everton.

The Iceland global was a critical player as the Liberty Stadium side avoided Premier League relegation towards the end of last season and has been consistently linked with a move to Goodison Park this summer.

But they are now poised to complete a deal for the Iceland star.

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

The former Spurs player has scored 30 goals in all competitions for Swansea, while Barkley, the man he would likely be replacing, has scored 27 since 2010.

Everton have been quite busy in the summer transfer window so far.

Swansea concluded their pre-season preparations with an impressive 4-0 win over Sampdoria at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday, with the home side prevailing without Sigurdsson's presence.

The 30-year-old France global had to make do with a peripheral role in north London last season and his chances of game-time have decreased further after Arsenal signed his compatriot Alexandre Lacazette for a club-record fee.

Everton manager Ronald Koeman admits the club are closing in on signing Gylfi Sigurdsson from Swansea. "I don't know about any interest for Aaron".

Koeman has made big changes to his squad this summer with Michael Keane, Davy Klaassen, Jordan Pickford, Sandro Ramirez Wayne Rooney and Cuco Martina all moving to Goodison Park.
