Swansea midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson will undergo a medical at Everton on Wednesday ahead of a permanent move to Goodison Park.
The Icelandic playmaker poised to finally complete his move to Goodison Park after the clubs came to an agreement over a fee for the star.
According to talkSPORT sources, Sigurdsson will pen a five-year contract with the Toffees for a fee rising to £45million.
The saga has dragged on for most of the summer with Swansea initially valuing the 27-year-old at £50m.
But Everton are finally set to secure their number one summer target at a price slightly lower than Swansea had wanted – taking their summer spending to over £140m.
It is understood he is expected on Merseyside on Wednesday for final checks before aiming to complete his move.
Sigurdsson pulled out of Swansea’s pre-season tour to the United States after Everton’s interest had become clear.
He rejoined first-team training upon Swansea’s return from the States but he did not figure in their Premier League opener at Southampton on Saturday.
Swansea rejected two Everton bids for Sigurdsson, but Toffees boss Ronald Koeman said last weekend that the deal was “still close” after reports that talks between the two clubs had broken down.
And Swansea manager Paul Clement was just as keen to close the deal to allow him time to find replacements before the transfer window closes at the end of August.
“The objective and the aim is that at some point the two clubs will meet,” Clement said ahead of the goalless draw at Southampton.
“I think the way it’s going there needs to be more than likely a compromise on both sides. That is very often how a deal is made.
“We are at a critical stage of this situation and hope it’s going to be resolved very quickly.”
Sigurdsson’s importance to Swansea was underlined by the fact he scored nine league goals and had 13 assists as the club just avoided relegation from the Premier League last season.
