Sigurdsson has impressed for Euro 2016 surprise package Iceland in France and was named man of the match in their 2-1 last-16 victory over England, having grabbed his side’s equaliser.

The 30-year-old, who has previously played for Swedish side IFK Goteborg and Danish outfit FC Copenhagen, is under contract with Krasnodar until 2018 but could be available for a fee in the region of £4million this summer.

Spurs will face competition, however, as German pair Wolfsburg and Schalke are reported to have already made contact with Krasnodar to discuss a potential deal.

The White Hart Lane club do appear well placed to land the centre-half despite the Bundesliga interest, as Sigurdsson is understood to favour a Premier league move and any transfer talks will surely be on hold until after Iceland’s Euro 2016 campaign has come to an end.

It has been claimed that Spurs have spoken to the player’s representatives and could launch a bid after Euro 2016 has ended, although Leicester City and Liverpool could provide further competition for the Iceland star.
