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.
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.
