Iceland defender Ragnar Sigurdsson hopes his eye-catching performances at Euro 2016 will earn him a move to the Premier League. The 30-year-old centre-half was one of Iceland's best performers aS they made it to the quarter-finals in France and Sigurdsson has revealed he is open to the prospect of moving to England.
Sigurdsson currently plays for Russian Super League outfit FC Krasnodar, who have reportedly put a £4m ($5.3m) price tag on his head. But they are willing to allow Sigurdsson - who is a lifelong Liverpool supporter - to leave the club this summer if someone is willing to match their valuation.
"I think a lot of this team will get a transfer. I have spoken with my agent and we will know more after the Euros," he said, according to The Mirror, amid reported interest from Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur. "It's important to stay focused and play your best so I will only think about my future after the Euros."
Sigurdsson scored in Iceland's shock 2-1 win against England and his performances have reportedly attracted interest from a number of clubs across Europe. Tottenham and Liverpool, for example, are apparently keen to sign Sigurdsson this summer to fill defensive gaps in their respective first-team squads.
The Icelander is reportedly seen by Tottenham as a good back-up option for Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen, their current first-choice central defensive partnership. Austria international Kevin Wimmer and Eric Dier are, at present, the club's only alternatives for the centre-back role.
