Gylfi Sigurdsson's relationship with Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers dates back to their time together at Reading

Gylfi Sigurdsson has agreed to follow former Swansea City boss Brendan Rodgers to Liverpool, according to the Daily Mirror.

The 22 year old Icelandic international spent the second half of last season on loan at Swansea and impressed with seven goals and three assists from 18 appearances in his debut Premier League campaign.

The Welsh club then announced they had agreed terms with the player and his parent club, Hoffenheim, over a permanent move. The agreement was reportedly made when Rodgers was still in charge at the Liberty Stadium.

However, now that the Northern Irishman has left the Swans to take charge of Liverpool, the player has decided on following him to Anfield. The midfielder was quoted, last week, as saying Rodgers' switch to Liverpool had changed his initial decision.

Sigurdsson is expected to become Rodgers' first signing as Liverpool boss.

Meanwhile, former Wigan Athletic midfielder Mohamed Diame, who was a Liverpool target while ex-boss Kenny Dalglish was in charge, is in discussions with West Ham United over a potential move, reports Sky Sports.

The 24 year old, whose contract with the Latics ran out at the end of the 2011/12 season, is also believed to be a target for other clubs and the report says the Senegalese international is set for a second round of negotiations with the Hammers. Diame recently admitted he was close to a switch to Anfield but the deal fell through following the sacking of Dalglish.

In other Liverpool news, striker Luis Suarez has stated that Rodgers' flowing football approach will be welcomed at the club. The 39 year old tactician, who signed a three-year deal with the Reds two weeks ago, was praised by pundits and fans for successfully implementing a style of football inspired by Barcelona at Swansea.

"I have to say Swansea were a pleasant surprise in the Premier League. They always tried to play football with short-pass combinations and didn't care what zone of the field they were at," quoted the Uruguayan as saying.
