Everton have renewed their interest in Swansea playmaker Gylfi Sigurdsson, according to the Sun.

The Toffees tried to sign the 27-year-old last summer and manager Ronald Koeman is set for a second attempt after being handed a £50 million war chest.

It may take an offer of at least half that though to prise Sigurdsson away from the Liberty Stadium after he penned a four-year deal at the start of the season.

The Iceland international has been Swansea’s best player this campaign, scoring five goals in a team that looks destined for relegation.

Koeman is a big fan of Sigurdsson and sees him as the man who can turn the clubs fortunes around after an indifferent first half of the season.

However, the Swans hierarchy are reportedly not interested in letting their star player go and may value him more than the £25 million offered if he means the difference in keeping the Welsh club in the Premier League.
