Y’all, Everton is drunk:
Everton have finally signed Iceland international Gylfi Sigurdsson from Swansea City for a fee reported to be up to £45m.
The 27-year-old has signed a five-year-deal at Goodison Park and becomes Ronald Koeman’s eighth major signing of the summer. Sigurdsson has been a long-term target for the Everton boss, who enquired about his availability in January and then the clubs engaged in what seemed like an unending back-and-forth since the beginning of this offseason.
The bonkers thing is that their fans seem mostly excited about this.
