Swansea City star could be welcome addition to West Ham United

West Ham United are favourites to land the signature of Swansea City star Gylfi Sigurdsson, according to the latest odds from Sky Bet.

What’s the word?

The Icelandic midfielder was linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium in the January transfer window, but he opted to stay put for the remainder of the season at least.

The Hammers have been touted as possible admirers of Sigurdsson before and with the summer transfer window on the horizon, speculation has returned.

Bookies Sky Bet have the East London club 5/1 favourites to sign the midfielder, while Everton, who were linked with the former Tottenham Hotspur star in January, are at 8/1.

Manager Paul Clement made it clear when he was appointed at the beginning of January that Sigurdsson was not for sale, but the topic could be revisited at the end of the season.

What would Sigurdsson bring to West Ham?

Judging by his form this season, he would provide creativity and goals to Slaven Bilic’s side.

Swansea are sitting just five points above the relegation zone in the Premier League, but that is not a reflection on Sigurdsson’s individual form.

The midfielder has scored eight goals and produced 10 assists in 27 Premier League appearances, and he has often single-handedly turned games around for the Welsh outfit.

Sigurdsson spent two years playing at Tottenham, but he struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in a team of emerging stars.

The midfielder is best suited to a setup where he can be one of the main men, and the Hammers could potentially offer him that.
