Icelandic midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson looks set to become Brendan Rodgers’ first signing as Liverpool manager.

The 22 year old spent last season on loan at Swansea under Rodgers and is keen to follow the boss to Merseyside.

BBC Sport, among others, now report that Liverpool have opened talks with Sigurdsson’s club Hoffenheim after the midfielder decided against making his move to Wales permanent.

Swansea had agreed a fee of £6.8m for Sigurdsson but Liverpool will have to pay nearer £9m as that fee was part of the loan agreement between the two clubs.

Sigurdsson made 36 appearances for Rodgers’ Swansea last season, scoring 12 goals in an attacking midfield role.

Yesterday Rodgers discussed his transfer targets to the official LFC site;

“I think there are a few players who can come in and improve the group straight away. I know the types of player I need to bring here to make us function well and that’s something myself, the club and the board will look at.

“I know what we’ve got, more or less, in the squad, but I also know there are a couple of signings that could really improve what we do.”

Did you know? Gylfi is chairman of a fishing company back in Iceland!
