The 24 year old may have hoped his first team chances would improve following Gareth Bale’s move to Real Madrid but that has not proven the case and as such may well be open to a move to a Premier League side who can offer him regular first team action and clearly a move across the capital won’t be a huge factor.

Sigurdsson has impressed when called upon at Spurs, scoring 13 goals in 83 appearances of which 39 were from the bench.
