Leicester City plotting move for Gylfi Sigurdsson

Football News

Leicester City have been linked with several top players since they were crowned Premier League champions earlier this month.

The Sun reported last week that the Foxes were lining up bids for Troy Deeney and Yannick Bolasie, while the Guardian linked them with a club-record move for Deportivo La Coruña striker Lucas Perez several days later.

And today, The Sun have claimed that Leicester are lining up an ambitious £15 million move for Swansea City playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The Iceland international has two years left to run on his current contract and might be tempted to join the Foxes this summer in order to play in the Champions League.

As Premier League winners, Leicester will enter the group stages of next season’s Champions League campaign as top seeds.

Sigurdsson has been Swansea's star man

It hasn’t been a particularly great campaign for the Swans, but they could finish as high as ninth today if they beat Manchester City at the Liberty Stadium and other results go their way.

Sigurdsson has undoubtedly been the Welsh club’s best player this term - scoring 11 goals and providing four assists in the league - and £15 million is unlikely to tempt Francesco Guidolin’s side into selling.

Will Sigurdsson be up for Leicester move?

But Leicester’s chances of signing the attacking midfielder will increase if Sigurdsson tells Swansea he wants to join Claudio Ranieri’s men at the King Power Stadium.

Should Gylfi Sigurdsson leave Swansea City for Leicester City? Have your say by leaving a comment below.
