Tottenham will receive 10% of the fee Everton pay for Gylfi Sigurdsson if Swansea accept an offer, according to The Times.
Everton have seen a bid of £45 million rejected by Swansea, but are expected to go back in with a £50 million offer.
That means Spurs will receive £5 million if and when the deal is completed.
Tottenham have been linked with a move for Sigurdsson themselves but balked at the midfielder’s hefty price tag.
Sigurdsson joined Spurs from Hoffenheim in 2012 for around £9 million. He spent two years at White Hart Lane before joining Swansea.
Ben Davies moved the other way in what appeared to be a straight swap deal. Both players were believed to be valued at around £10 million.
Sigurdsson’s value has evidently gone through the roof since 2014. It’s crazy to think Everton are close paying £50 million for a player who fell below expectations at Tottenham.
While the Iceland international would be a decent squad addition for Spurs, I think they are right to let Everton have him.
Hopefully that £5 million goes towards a new signing.
