Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is eyeing a reunion with his former Swansea star Gylfi Sigurdsson in the January transfer window, according to Sports Direct News.

The Icelandic midfielder, now of Tottenham, could be available when the transfer window re-opens, after becoming something of a squad player at White Hart Lane this season.

Although Sigurdsson has impressed recently with three goals in his last two home games, he faces an uncertain future at the club with the likes of Christian Eriksen and Erik Lamela signing during the summer, plus the likes of Lewis Holtby waiting in the wings as well.

The 24-year-old first caught the eye in the Premier League during his time at Swansea under Rodgers, when he scored an impressive 7 goals in 18 appearances during a brief loan spell from German side Hoffenheim.

With Liverpool looking out for a playmaker of his type in January, Sigurdsson may now be Rodgers’ main candidate as he seeks to add to his squad in the middle of the season, as the Northern Irishman missed out on the likes of Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Willian during the summer.

With Spurs possibly set to continue spending big after their lucrative sale of Gareth Bale, Andre Villas-Boas may feel he could lose Sigurdsson and find a suitable replacement.
