Spurs captured their first major signing of the summer with the arrival of Paulinho over the weekend but the deal sparked an inevitable spate of speculation as to who would be leaving through the White Hart Lane exit door.
Gylfi Sigurdsson seems to have been identified as the man most likely to depart but one suggestion is the possibility of a loan deal to former club Swansea as the Icelander is keen to impress head coach Andre Villas-Boas and to prove himself as a long term prospect for Spurs.
Other stories claim that the Swans, together with Liverpool, are about to make a bid for a permanent signing but is there any truth in the rumour or are these simply easy links to make?
Sig enjoyed a productive spell at the Liberty Stadium in the 2011-12 campaign, scoring seven goals in 18 league matches while his former manager Brendan Rodgers seemed set to take him to Anfield before Spurs stepped in last summer.
If Reading, who are said to have made a bid back in January, hadn’t been relegated, maybe the Royals would also have been linked with 23 year olds’ signature.
AVB may be reluctant to lose a player who scored some vital goals for the team at the end of last season but with game time set to be restricted next year, what is Gylfi’s best option?
