Rodgers Will Target Sigurdsson If He Snubs Swansea
Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers says he will 'have to be interested' in Gylfi Sigurdsson if he becomes available on the transfer market.
The former Swans boss, who left the Liberty Stadium this week to make a move to Anfield, says he's told chairman Huw Jenkins that if he talks to the player, he'll 'make sure' that he has talks with Swansea's new manager first.
However, if Sigurdsson is no longer interested in making his loan move permanent in South Wales, Rodgers will almost definitely look to sign him at Anfield.
Rodgers told the Mirror:
"When I had a chat with Huw Jenkins the other day, after I told him I was going to Liverpool, I gave him assurances that I wouldn`t be going back for any players. My word still stands on that. But Gylfi came to Swansea because I was the manager there.
"I actually pushed Swansea towards making an agreement with Gylfi - and they eventually did that in terms of the fee and then the salary. But ultimately it`s now down to Gylfi.
"I have told Huw that if I speak to the kid, I will make sure he definitely goes down to Swansea and speaks to the new manager, whoever that is.
"But if Gylfi is not comfortable with that and he comes back on to the market then I have to be interested."
