Swansea are hoping to complete deals for former players Wilfried Bony and Joe Allen, as well as Nacer Chadli, once Gylfi Sigurdsson's move to Everton is complete, according to Sky sources.

Everton will reportedly pay a transfer fee in the region of £50 million for the services of Sigurdsson, who scored nine Premier League goals last season for the Swans.

"We are still in a situation at the moment where there's a difference in opinion on the valuation of the player, but I don't think it's far off. I get the sense it's closer".
