Liverpool close in on Hoffenheim ace

Gylfi Sigurdsson Swansea CityIn-demand midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson is set to move to Liverpool, according to Mirror Football.

The Iceland international spent the second half of last season on loan at Swansea and impressed in his temporary deal at the Liberty Stadium.

As such a bidding war has ensued to snap up the Scandinavian from parent club Hoffenheim, with the Swans thought to have all but sealed a deal to bring him to Wales on a permanent basis.

However, with Brendan Rodgers moving to Anfield the deal has fallen through, and Sigurdsson is now set to follow his mentor to Merseyside.

A fee of around £7 million is expected to be paid, as Rodgers looks to strengthen his Reds squad.

Other targets for the new boss include Wigan midfielder Mohamed Diame, who is out of contract, and an enquiry is believed to have been made for Bologna star Gaston Ramirez.
