On-loan Swansea City attacking midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson will cost any interested clubs at least £10 million, according to The Daily Mirror, after a number of impressive displays at the Liberty Stadium.

Since joining the Welsh club on loan in January, Sigurdsson has attracted interest from a host of top Premier League clubs, including Liverpool and Manchester United.

However, Hoffenheim have valued the Icelandic midfielder at £10 million as they look to cash in on the talented player. The former-Reading star joined the Bundesliga side in 2010 after a successful two years at the Madejski Stadium.

He appeared to settle into the German side's midfield well, winning Hoffenheim's fans' player of the year award in his only full season with the club.

However, he quickly fell out of favour, making just seven league appearances before moving to the Liberty Stadium in the January transfer window.

Seven goals in 14 Premier League appearances since joining the Swans has led to interest from clubs higher up the table, with Sir Alex Ferguson and Kenny Dalglish reportedly interested in securing the midfielder's services.

With Sigurdsson set to move in the summer, it remains to be seen whether he will stay with Brendan Rogers' side. Any deal will cost at least £10 million though, which may price the Welsh club out of move and open the door for a switch to either Anfield or Old Trafford.
