There is no doubt that Swansea would miss the extreme talent of their Iceland worldwide, however there are rarely positives that come from forcing a player to remain at a football club against their wishes, whereas Clement could re-stabalise the dressing room and also make two impressive additions if he elects to chase them.
The Iceland global played a key part last season as Swansea maintained a Premier League status after facing relegation scare.
"But it would be a massive blow, you can't deny the influence he had on the team".
"When you see his stats last years in terms of assists and goals you would be thinking he would definitely be playing for one of the teams in the top half of the table". I'm not going to put an actual day on it, but imminently means in the very near future. By all accounts they want £50m. "If he does go, it's vitally important to replace him with the same kind of quality".
The 27-year-old did not travel with Swansea for their tour of the United States and was also left out of Saturday's 2-0 pre-season win at Birmingham Citybecause of the transfer speculation.
"It's a hard one, it has maybe dragged on longer than a lot of people have expected", Britton, 34, said. "I think Everton have maybe offered £40-45 million so I think there'll be some movement now and Gylfi will go".
Sigurdsson is one of the best players in the Premier League and will fit into to Ronald Koeman's side and if somehow Swansea manage to sell him for a fee close to £50 million, the Swans can reinvest and possibly sign more players with the funds they receive post-sale. We know what happened last season if you don't make a good start and we don't want that to happen again.
"You never know, things can change overnight so you live in hope that he will stay".
"But Everton have bid a lot of money before and they are not too far away from [his reported asking price] and they might come back through with it. I think there probably is a little bit of frustration there that he wants it done".
