Everton are looking to increase their efforts in a bid to land £30million-rated Swansea City midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson, according to reports.

The Iceland international was the Swans’ star player last season, providing 13 assists and scoring nine goals in 38 Premier League appearances.

And the Daily Mail claims that the Toffees will make a “renewed push” for his services this week despite splashing out Davy Klaassen from Ajax.

Sigurdsson remains their number one target with Ronald Koeman hoping to add more creativity to his side but he could face competition from Leicester City, who have also expressed an interest.

Everton have already spent £57million this week on Klaassen, Sandro Ramirez from Malaga and Jordan Pickford from Sunderland.

Meanwhile, Koeman is also thought to be interested in bringing Burnley defender Michael Keane to Goodison Park after contact was understood to have been made.

And the Dutchman will be hoping that the prospect of regular first-team football will tempt Keane to move to Merseyside with a host of other clubs also thought to be interested.
