Manchester United, Liverpool and Everton told to stump up 10m if they want Sigurdsson

Manchester United, Liverpool and Everton are all chasing Swansea loan star Gylfi Sigurdsson – but parent club Hoffenheim will not let him leave on the cheap slapping a 10million on the midfielder.
The Iceland star has been in fine form since joining the Swans on loan in January having scored seven goals in 14 starts for Brendan Rodgers' side and now the Bundesliga outfit are now demanding a large fee for the attacking midfielder.
Catching the eye: A host of Premier League clubs are interested in signing Gylfi Sigurdsson
Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish, Everton coach Jimmy Lumsden and United spy Martin Ferguson all watched Sigurdsson dazzle against Bolton on Saturday.
Swansea would love to extend the former Reading player’s loan for another year, but Hoffenheim know they can cash in – with Newcastle also admirers – and will sell to the highest bidder.
The loan deal has not been popular with the German club’s fans and they still sing Sigurdsson’s name every week and only a major fee for the 22-year-old will take the heat out of the decision.
