5 Alternative Midfielders Everton Should Sign Instead Of Splashing The Cash On Gylfi Sigurðsson.

We’ve all been glued to our seats since Mid-June, after noticing Everton had spent more than £10 Million and signed 4 players before the transfer window opened and one player has been mentioned more times than then players brought in.

Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurðsson was by far the captain that steered Swansea’s relegation ship clear of the drop, and has ever since been linked with a move away from Wales. Everton throughout the last 2 months have been top of that list and have even seen 2 bids for the 27-year-old rejected. Forcing Swansea to demand £50 Million for their star man.
However we have picked out 5 alternatives that could save Everton a few pennies and still get a good player.

#5 Emil Forsberg (RB Leipzig) Value: £32 Million

Voted Swedish midfielder of the year in 2014 and 2016, winger, Emil Forsberg has been taking the Bundesliga by storm at RB Leipzig, with his stunning ability and one of Europe’s deadliest free kicks. The versatile winger is blessed with plenty of trickery, dribbling skills and excellent vision to pick out passes. Forsberg would however come at a price believed to be around the £32M mark but would fit well in the winger roll at Everton or even as a N.10.

Crouch would fit right in and give us an edge at set pieces doesn't mean I'd pay 50 million though

Try getting the ball of capt Rooney for the set pieceslol

Well Everton have offered £40M for Sigurdsson, which has been K/O by Swansea but he hasn't travelled with Swansea on
their oversea's tour, so it looks like his head has been turned by Everton, or the money we can offer him.

Get Ross signed and maybe Sanchez on loan and save a fortune that can go on a striker


Sanches on loan would be good, see how he gets in before buying. But I still think Sigardsson is the right one to buy, I don't really think it would be as much as £50million either, probably around £40 million after add ons. As others have said it would go down as an undisclosed fee, I know Leicester are meant to have offer £40 million but I wouldn't think he would be to keen going there, when he knows we are interested.


That Castro is a proper tidy little player, got a bit of the Arteta about him in keeping the ball really well for such a little fella, turns over the possession quickly linked really well with aubameyang (So?) but I think his position is already filled with Klassaan in my opinion. Can't see any other on that list save the obvious one we own coming to the blues. Plus Sanchez jigsawed last season
