Koeman: Sigurdsson deal close, then three more signings

Everton manager Ronald Koeman has revealed that the Toffees are close to completing their move for Swansea City's Gylfi Sigurdsson, and want to sign three more.

Koeman's side had an initial bid of £40m rejected by the Swans, who value the playmaker at £50m, but believes they are nearing a successful conclusion to negotiations.

The Dutch tactician added that they are also in the hunt for three more players to add to their squad before the end of the transfer window.

"We are close (on Sigurdsson), we have to wait… the deal is not done," Koeman told Sky Sports.

"Everybody knows we are looking for three more players – a left centre-back, a left full-back, a player who can play out of both positions, a winger and a striker and that's the picture, what the best is for our team and we will see what we can do."
