​Southampton have joined the race for Swansea's Icelandic set-piece specialist Gylfi Sigurdsson. 


According to the ​Daily Mail, Everton, Newcastle and West Ham have been joined by the Saints in their pursuit of the Swansea midfielder. 

Sigurdsson has been impressive for The Swans this season, with eight goals and eleven assists for the struggling Welsh side. 


The report states that Swansea value the 27-year-old midfielder at £35m, but their bargaining power could be undermined severely should they fail to avoid the drop. 


Everton manager Ronald Koeman is rumoured to be particularly keen, as he would like to build a side that is capable of of challenging for both the top four and the Europa League. 

Sigurdsson originally spent a season on-loan with the Welsh club before being snapped up by Tottenham for around £8m from Hoffenheim. However, after struggling for game time, Swansea moved to bring back their fan favourite for a second spell at the club. 


Sigurdsson's move in the summer will depend heavily on whether Swansea stay up and if the midfielder himself would like another crack at playing for one of the bigger Premier League clubs. 


Southampton are rumoured to also be keen on Leeds United's Pontus Jansson, whilst West Brom are reportedly scouting his teammate Charlie Taylor.
