Spurs set to snatch Liverpool target Sigurdsson

Tottenham Hotspur are now favourites to land Gylfi Sigurðsson in what could be an embarrassing snub for both Liverpool and Brendan Rodgers.

The 22 year old Icelandic midfielder spent last season with Swansea City on loan, and was expected to complete a deal to join Swansea, before Brendan Rodgers left the Welsh club for Liverpool.

Rodgers has held extensive talks with the player about a move to Liverpool - however the player has agreed personal terms with Spurs with an £8M deal expected to be rubber stamped later this week by his club - 1899 Hoffenheim.

  1. I’m not convinced about Mr Rodgers one bit. Will give him the benefit of the doubt but still feel that getting rid of Kenny, has set us back 5yrs.
    I think it’s says alot when the player says he signed for spurs because he thought they were going places….Please prove me wrong brendan. YNWA!

  2. Lets giving Brendon the benefit of the doubt here after-all we don;t need any more mediocre players in the squad. We may have been interested but obviously did not pursue that for good reason.

    I was glad to hear Brendon say that he won’t be signings players unless they can improve the squad which is exactly what we need. We don’t need any more bench warmers or expensive flops rather those who make a major impact when called upon.

    Spurs are welcome to this Icelandic fella!

  3. I remember BR saying ‘if he becomes available, I would have to look at him…- that doesn’t mean he was going to sign him. All this is mere postulation, what we do know is that central midfield at LFC is rammed with central mids and perhaps other positions where we are lacking are more important with the funds at his disposal. I believe if he wanted him – he would’ve signed him.

  4. The problem we have is that Rogers is too casual on the transfer  market before we know it we might end up with mediocre signings and remain as a mid table team.Dont sell suarez we do not need hunterleer  no thank you.Someone pump some sense into brendan’s head!shame!!

  5. so to get this straight, he knows BR well after 2 loan spells, he knows his system well, he knows BR WANTS him and he knows the stature of LFC yet he goes to a manager-less club not knowing if the new guy will even fancy him or if he will suit his way of playing! wow! i guess money really DOES talk! good riddance! i would much prefer to sign players who consider it a privilege to play for our great institution and not mercenaries! or maybe i’m just naive, maybe loyal players simply don’t exist anymore!

      • did you even hear what the player himself said when linked with Lfc? you’re obviously a man ure divvy! come back when you’ve won 5 ya dipstick!

    • Id prefer us to sign the best footballers who win matches, mercenaries or not. I dont give a f**k, as long as we win. Stop living in the past, typical liverpool fan. Loyalty in football!? Pffft!!!


      Reds fan going on 22 years, trying to leave the past where it belongs… In The Past!!
