Tottenham Hotspur should consider re-signing Sigurdsson to add extra creative spark

Tottenham Hotspur sit comfortably in the Premier League table as they are fourth in the standings, five points adrift of leaders Manchester City.

Even though they have suffered just one defeat in their last six outings in all competitions, there is a sense that the team are not at their best.

Mauricio Pochettino has plenty of creative players to choose from, but perhaps he should be looking to recruit one more in the form of Gylfi Sigurdsson.

Just a few months after Pochettino was appointed as Spurs manager, the midfielder returned to Swansea City from White Hart Lane.

Sigurdsson had spent two years at Tottenham, but he dropped down the pecking order after failing to make much of an impact on the left side of midfield.

The Iceland international spent three years in Wales before signing for Everton last year, and he has since become a crucial member of the Merseyside team.

Now that he plays through the middle, Sigurdsson is instrumental for the Toffees, and his performances this season should attract the attention of Tottenham.

In 11 Premier League outings, the midfielder has scored five goals and registered two assists, but his tally could be much higher given how often he has mustered attempts in the final third.

Sigurdsson has also been dominant in the middle of the pitch as he has created an impressive 30 key passes in the top flight.

He is predominantly attack-minded, but the 29-year-old can also win the ball back when he needs to.

Tottenham may not be crying out for another creative outlet, but Sigurdsson would slot in well to Pochettino’s system.

The only problem that Spurs may face is the fact that there is sterner competition for places at the North London club compared to Everton, where Sigurdsson is a regular starter.
