According to the latest reports circulating the sports community, Leicester City FC have their sights set on Swansea midfielder, Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Despite having won the Premier League this season, Leicester are still looking for ways to improve and build on their winning team, and the ex Tottenham player is one name that has grabbed their attention. The Icelandic star has been a prominent asset to Swansea, having secured nine goals in the back of the net since the start of the year. This continued form is said to be why Foxes manager, Claudio Ranieri, is rumoured to have the 26 year old down for the No.10 shirt. If the speculation is true, then the team are looking to make a £15 million bid for the player, who still has two years left on his current contract. Although Leicester stand a good chance given their current status, there are many other clubs vying for primary position.
It isn’t just the Champions that are eying up potential team members, for Manchester United have reportedly offered a staggering £60 million offer to Real Madrid player, James Rodriguez. This season has been very hit and miss for United, with many fans calling for Louis van Gaal to leave, so this bid could be seen as a means to appease fans and bring some new blood into the lacklustre club. At the age of 23, the star has a chance to inject some much needed magic into the front ranks of the Man U team; Rodriguez is an proficient footballer that is suited to forward roles, although a central position is expected if the transfer is a success.
Undoubtedly the transfer rumours likely to crop up between now and over summer have caused a buzz among spectators across all communities of the sports world, least of all bookmakers.
Although there is a while to go before the transfer window closes, it seems that no one team is ready to take it easy and bide their time; Manchester City is said to be going for a double scoop, such is their frenzy. Even though the rumour is still in its infancy, it is thought that upcoming manager, Pep Guardiola, is keen to get Jack Wilshere and Alexis Sanchez on board.
