The Evening Post are today reporting that Swansea City 'are on the brink' of signing Hoffenheim midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson.
Chairman Huw Jenkins has moved quick to try and make the loanee's stay permanent after a magnificent spell since joining back in January. He jetted off to Germany to discuss a potential move.
Other reports suggested that the Swans failed with a second bid, thought to be around £4m, but recent speculation says that he could join for 10 million euros - which is around £8million.
If the two clubs can agree a deal for the player, then it'll be up to Rodgers to work his magic again to persuade him to stay on at the Liberty Stadium, despite bigger clubs such as Manchester United and Arsenal also keeping an eye on him.
Hoffenheim paid Reading £6.5m for him so the German side will be looking to get their money back and more for the 22 year-old.
If Swansea City did sign him for £8m, this would more than double their existing club record - which is currently at £3.5m - paid to Watford for striker Danny Graham.
Vital Swansea hope to update you soon with good news regarding a potential Swansea switch for Sigurdsson.
