Everton Offer Sigurdsson Same Wage As Rooney

Sigurdsson To Earn £150,000-A-Week At Everton

Everton transfer news

Everton have offered Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson a deal worth £150,000 a week to make the switch to Goodison Park.

Iceland international Sigurdsson is keen to make the move to Merseyside and the Toffees last week made a €40million bid. The 27-year-old has been left off the Swans’ pre-season tour of the United States while talks continue over his future. Swansea are looking for a transfer fee of £50million.

But Everton are willing to pay Sigurdsson the same wages as Wayne Rooney. The England skipper made the move back to Goodison Park earlier this month on a deal worth £150,000 a week. According to the Daily Mirror, the Icelander will be offered the same deal as Rooney. Sigurdsson currently earns £80,000 a week at the Liberty Stadium.
