Gylfi Sigurdsson has been valued at £10million, as Liverpool, Everton and Manchester United all warm to the Icelander.
Swansea’s on-loan star has been outstanding since joining from German club Hoffenheim.
But the Bundesliga outfit are now demanding a large fee for the attacking midfielder, who has blasted seven goals in 14 starts for the Swans.
Kop chief Kenny Dalglish, Everton Coach Jimmy Lumsden and United spy Martin Ferguson all watched Sigurdsson dazzle against Bolton on Saturday. Swansea would love to extend the former Reading player’s loan for another year, but Hoffenheim know they can cash in – with Newcastle also admirers – and will sell to the highest bidder.
The loan deal has been controversial with the German side’s supporters.
They still sing Sigurdsson’s name every week and only a major fee for the 22-year-old will take the heat out of the decision.
That means the Premier League big hitters will have to get out their cheque books to make a move happen.
