Brendan Rodgers, the manager of Swansea City, says that Gylfi Þór Sigurðsson has done excellent work with the team since he started playing with them as part of a loan deal with Hoffenheim last January, mbl.is reported last Saturday. Gylfi has scored three goals in seven games with the team and has been voted the best player in the last few games.

Swansea would like to make a permanent contract with Gylfi, but he currently has two years remaining of his contract with Hoffenheim. However, news has been reported that Italian teams Inter and Juventus already have their sights on Gylfi. After Swansea’s surprising win against Manchester City, 1:0 last Sunday, the English football clubs Arsenal and Aston Villa have joined the race to try to snag Gylfi, according to English internet media, such as footie-online, mbl.is reports.
