Everton manager, Ronald Koeman has revealed that he is excited with the signing of midfielder, Gylfi Sigurdsson from Swansea City.
Furthermore, the Dutch tactician has insisted that the Toffees have landed “one of the best” playmakers in the Premier League.
Everton have announced they have signed the attacking midfielder from the Welsh club in a club record deal worth £45million.
The Toffees have gone ahead to confirm they have landed the signature of the Icelandic international on a five-year contract.
Infact, the Merseyside outfit have also made the confirmation of the capture of the play-maker on their official Twitter handle.
The Premier League club posted on Twitter: “Everton can confirm the signing of midfielder, Gylfi Sigurdsson on a five-year deal from Swansea City.
Everton manager, Koeman had made it clear that he still wanted about three players before this summer transfer window ends.
And that is inspite of the Toffees having gone ahead to land the signatures of seven quality players so far.
But they have now gone ahead to sign their eighth signing of the current summer transfer window after capturing Sigurdsson.
“Sigurdsson is one of the best” – Koeman
Koeman has revealed that he actually rates Sigurdsson as one of the best midfielders in the world of football.
The Netherlands gaffer has also disclosed that he is very happy to have finally ended his stalemate with the Swans.
And that is over the landing of the signature of the Icelandic star from the Welsh outfit this summer window.
“I am really happy because the board and especially our chairman, Bill Kenwright, did everything to get him on board.” Koeman told Everton TV.
“It took some time but finally, we have signed the player.
“Of course, from the beginning, he was one of the key players we wanted to bring to Everton.
“That is because of his quality first and foremost and his experience in the Premier League.
“We need more productivity, we don’t sign one player who will score 25 goals.
“But we need several players around our striker to get that number and he is one of those productive players.
“He has also gone ahead to show that with his wonderful performances at Swansea and also in the past.
“In my opinion and right there in his position, he is one of the best currently in the Premier League.” Koeman summed up.
