Gylfi Sigurdsson is one of a number of attacking midfield targets Spurs are being linked with a summer move for.
In December, Mauricio Pochettino spoke of his admiration for the Iceland international, admitting he would have been “perfect” for his system, per the Guardian.
The 27-year-old re-joined Swansea in 2014 having struggled to nail down a regular first-team place at White Hart Lane, but with Spurs now looking for another option in his position, he could be set for a return.
Of course, Paul Clement will be desperate to keep hold of his main man, but that could depend on whether the Welsh outfit beat the drop or not.
In any case, the Sun report that Sigurdsson is also being targeted by the Chinese Super League, with clubs from the Far East willing to pay at least £30million for him.
The Chinese transfer window is actually still open and will be for the rest of the month, but Swansea absolutely can’t afford to let him go while their Premier League status still hangs in the balance. He equalled their record goalscoring tally in the top flight with a goal against Southampton in midweek.
