We are reportedly increasingly keen to sign Iceland’s EURO 2016 star, Ragnar Sigurdsson.
The news, which was reported in the Guardian, suggests we face still competition from Premier League rivals Spurs and Leicester, as well as German clubs Schalke and Wolfsburg.
Sigurdsson currently plays for Russian Super League side Krasnodar. The 30-year-old has caught the eye so far during this summer’s European Championships as Iceland’s fairytale journey continued when they beat England 2-1 on Monday. He scored Iceland’s equaliser.
Iceland will face France in Paris in the quarter-finals.
The article claims we’ll need to pay around £4.1 million if we want to secure his services.
Sigurdsson, who plays in defence, could be a good option for the next couple of years, especially now Skrtel and Kolo have left the club and Sakho’s future is unclear.
He’s won 60 caps for Iceland and has played for both IFK Göteborg and FC København at club level.
