Everton manager Koeman wants to sign another striker and winger

Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson will undergo a medical at Everton on Wednesday ahead of a permanent move to Goodison Park.

Sigurdsson returns to Goodison Park after his brother tweeted a picture of him as a youngster, wearing an Everton shirt, next to a statue of Dixie Dean outside the stadium.

The saga has dragged on for most of the summer with Swansea initially valuing the 27-year-old at £50m.

Icelandic global Sigurdsson finished third in combined goals and assists amongst midfielders in the Premier League last season behind Manchester City's Kevin de Bruyne and Tottenham's Christian Eriksen.

How North Korea Crisis Could Impact US Dollar
The Korean Peninsula has been locked in a cycle of military tensions since the 1950-1953 Korean War, which ended in an armistice. Americans have long perceived North Korea as a threat, but more acutely so in the last few weeks, according to recent polling.

Further squad strengthening has depended on Sigurdsson's expected move to Everton - and we finally have the funds to try and push through two or three signings within the next two weeks or so.

Swansea also plan to spend £13m on striker Wilfried Bony, who they sold to City for £25m in 2015.

Much has been made of Lukaku's departure from the Merseyside club, and rightly so, with Everton having been reliant on his goals for a number of seasons.

Ronald Koeman has said that Everton new boy Gylfi Sigurdsson has told him that he needs game-time, at his latest press conference which was broadcast on Beanyman Sports' Youtube channel.

NY welcomes Trump with protests, security measures
Trump tweeted about his return to the city, writing, "Leaving for New York City and meetings on military purchases and trade". No protesters could be seen from the motorcade along the way, as many were gathered on a different street from its route.

"There's frustration here and I'm sure Southampton are frustrated, too", Swansea manager Paul Clement said after his side had drawn 0-0 with Southampton on Saturday.

Sigurdsson joined Swansea from Tottenham Hotspur in a £6.8m deal in 2014 and he has scored 29 goals in over 100 appearances as the Swans have battled to stay in the Premier League.

"They have started well and brought in some good players but we are confident because of what we did last season and our record against them is quite encouraging". The manager has got really good experience as a club and a player. I put pressure on myself to play well. "The most important thing is that this team keeps winning games and climbing the table - and does that throughout the season".

He went onto claim that the Icelandic midfielder is 'one of the best in the Premier League in his position'. By far his strongest trait, his free-kick last season at Old Trafford springs to mind, where he expertly curled the ball into the corner giving Swansea a point to take away from a hard fixture. "It makes sense that when the season is starting, planning for the team is over".
