New Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers could snatch midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson away from his former club Swansea.

Sigurdsson is yet to sign a contract with the Swans despite agreement on a club-record £6.8million deal to sign him permanently from Hoffenheim following a successful loan spell. Rodgers had pushed the Welsh club to sign Sigurdsson, who he also worked with at Reading, but the Northern Irishman's move to Anfield could prompt a rethink by the player.

"Gylfi came to Swansea because I was there as manager and his scoring record was fantastic," Rodgers told various Sunday newspapers.
