Swansea have reportedly decided that £50m is a fair price for Gylfi Sigurdsson.
It’s difficult to argue with the Welsh club’s logic as Everton are asking for the same price for Ross Barkley and hope to replace him with the Icelander.
BBC Wales claim that Swansea have turned down a £40m bid for Sigurdsson from Leicester City.
Sigurdsson scored nine goals and made 13 assists in the Premier League last season as the Swans escaped relegation.

Everton are selling Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United for £75m so Swansea have quite rightly surmised that they have the funds to buy their best player.
