Everton willing to hand Rooney wages to Sigurdsson

Everton are ready to make a huge offer to Swansea City attacker Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The Mirror says Sigurdsson is on course to double his wages and gain parity with Wayne Rooney at Everton.

Rooney, 31, completed a switch back to Goodison Park earlier this month from Manchester United on a £150,000-a-week deal.

Now big-spending Everton boss Ronald Koeman is set to increase his bid for Swansea talisman Sigurdsson.

Everton have since seen a £40 million bid rejected by the Welsh club who are demanding £50m.

But the deal is still expected to go through and Sigurdsson is in line for a huge increase on his £80,000-a-week at the Swans.
