Sigurdsson deal still on - Everton remain hopeful

Sandro Ramirez expects to adapt “perfectly” at Everton

Everton have not replaced Belgium global Romelu Lukaku, who signed for Manchester United in a deal worth £90m last month, and Koeman admits the Toffees are finding it hard to recruit an adequate successor to the 24-year-old.

The Everton manager has also revealed the club have received no firm interest in midfielder Ross Barkley and the England global is now back in training after groin surgery.

"I would like the situation resolved as soon as possible".

Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson is left out of the squad to face Southampton. "The way it is going there needs to be a compromise on both sides, normally when both deals are done it is a win win for both sides".

" One of the reasons I don't want to talk about other names is because unless something is done with Gylfi's situation there is no point saying anything", Clement said.

"We have a valuation, the other club has a valuation and we have not met".

"But we have a number of weeks to go, and I don't anticipate it going to the end of the window".


"Clearly we have done our research once those funds become available and we will be ready to act on them".

"All the players have had a good attitude in pre-season and they are very focused".

He also played an important role in Paul Clement's side maintaining the Premier League status having registered four goals and created a further seen in 18 games under the former Chelsea coach. And the best XI will start the game. That has not changed. "I heard rumours that talks broke down but we are still in negotiations with Swansea".

Swansea are thought to be holding out for £50million and their manager Paul Clement has suggested negotiations are now at an impasse.

"We hope to carry on that momentum from the end of last season", he told the club website.

Asked if Everton have the firepower needed to achieve their aims this season, Koeman said: "Not yet because as everybody knows we're still working on some targets and that's hard".
