The Best Years Are Yet To Come

The Best Years Are Yet To Come

All being well this will indeed prove to be the case with Gylfi Sigurdsson.

New club record signing Sigurdsson certainly believes his best years will come at Goodison Park as he's swapped Swansea for Everton at the stage where he's beginning to 'reach his peak.'

Sigurdsson has steadily grown in stature since first arriving in England as a 16 year old at Reading. Spells with Swansea and Tottenham followed and have seen constant improvement into the footballer he is today.

When asked if his best years would be ahead of him with the Blues he told the Official Website: 'I hope so, yes. I have been improving over the past few years so, hopefully, I am starting to reach my peak. Over the past 10 years or so, since I have been a footballer, I have always tried to improve. And, hopefully, that will continue over the next few years and I will do well for this Club.'

Having paid a reported £45m for the Icelandic international there will certainly be pressure on Sigurdsson's shoulders to replicate the form he's shown during his two spells in Wales, especially his second stint in Swansea following two years at White Hart Lane.

Sigurdsson will be mainly judged on his goals return and assists provided but his hard working attitude should be taken into account too and he will 'try to work hard for the team' going on to say he feels this will 'suits the pressing game the manager here wants to play.'

As for the transfer fee paid, he knows the market is 'crazy' but the money involved wasn't something he could influence or is anything to do with him - not that it doesn't mean Sigurdsson isn't out to repay this faith.

He finished: 'If you look at the transfer market these days, it is crazy. But it is not something I am interested in or focused on. It is out of my hands, it is nothing to do with me. I think it shows the intent and how much the manager wanted me. Now it is time for me to repay the manager and the Club.'
