West Ham United are planning a second attempt at landing Swansea’s Gylfi Sigurdsson, according to The Mirror.

The 27-year-old is reportedly seen by the club as Dimitri Payet’s replacement and the London club tried to bring him in the winter transfer window, but any advances for the player were rejected.

The Iceland international spent a single season at Swansea before moving to Tottenham Hotspur, however he returned to the Liberty Stadium after just two years in London.

He has made 29 Premier League appearances this campaign, scoring eight goals and providing 11 assists at Swansea.

Slaven Bilic is now allegedly preparing a second bid in an attempt to lure Sigurdsson to London as he looks to rebuild his squad after an inconsistent season.

The Hammers will seemingly face competition from Ronald Koeman and Everton, with the club looking to line up a replacement for Ross Barkley as he has not signed a new contract and is attracting interest from top clubs.

With West Ham facing competition from a side that are currently five places above them in the table, they may have to pay over the odds to land their man at the second attempt.
