Is Sigurdsson worth £50m? Everton not perturbed by Swansea price

The ESPN FC crew bring you all the latest transfer talk from the Premier League.
The ESPN FC crew bring you all the latest transfer talk from the Premier League.

Is Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson worth £50 million? Swansea seem to think so, and Everton appear ready to pay something close to that, having had a previous £40m bid rebuffed.

Swansea's logic for a price almost £20m higher than what James Rodriguez might cost Bayern Munich is simple. Without the Icelandic playmaker's nine goals and 13 assists last season, the Liberty Stadium would be hosting Championship rather than Premier League football in August. As such, any attempts...

Son Heung-Min, Ki Sung-Yeung under World Cup cloud for South Korea

Tottenham's Son Heung-min believes the team has to win trophies next season to prove they are a big club in world football.
ESPN FC's Jason Dasey and PJ Roberts recap the big wins for Japan, South Korea and Iran in AFC World Cup qualifying.

Son Heung-Min receives medical treatment during South Korea's World Cup qualifying match against Qatar.
Son Heung-Min underwent surgery after breaking his forearm in South Korea's World Cup qualifier against Qatar on June 13.

These are troubled times for South Korea. Son Heung-Min and Ki Sung-Yeung are not only in danger of missing the start of the new Premier League season, but could be absent, or short of fitness, for do-or-die 2018 AFC World Cup qualifiers against Iran and Uzbekistan, starting next month.

June's loss to Qatar was seismic for a number of reasons. For one, it resulted in Son breaking his arm. The forward had a fine season for Tottenham Hotspur, scoring 21 goals in all competitions.

Paul Clement deserves backing after Swansea's escape from relegation

Craig Burley examines Paul Clement's run with Swansea compared to Bob Bradley's and assesses the club's narrow survival.

Swansea's toughest Premier League season yet saw them flirt with relegation, make three managerial changes and survive with one game remaining. Coach Paul Clement's masterful escape strategy and captain Leon Britton's peerless leadership helped Swans over the line.

Swansea end tumultuous season strongly with five-game unbeaten run

Fernando Llorente once again played the hero for Swansea in their come-from-behind win over West Brom.

After a slow start, Swansea sprung to life in the second half to give their home fans a proper send-off following a season of stress, beating West Bromwich Albion 2-1.

Another victory means Swansea finished a season of struggle on a five-game unbeaten streak. Key players Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente were again front and centre, with each involved in the goals, and Swansea will hope both men remain with the club for next season. Based on recent form, it is hard to imagine...

Saved Swans can play without pressure, with decisions in mind

Craig Burley examines Paul Clement's run with Swansea compared to Bob Bradley's and assesses the club's narrow survival.

And so the season draws to a close, with Swansea fans finally able to relax and perhaps just enjoy a football match without worrying about relegation for once.

Swansea secured their top flight survival with last Saturday's 2-0 away win over Sunderland and will host West Brom this Sunday. Albion sit comfortably in ninth place and haven't won in eight matches, and seem unlikely to resist a Swansea side high on relief and likely to be playing with more freedom than they have all season so far.
