Following his heroics at EURO 2016, Ragnar Sigurdsson is being tracked by both Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City.

The Guardian claims that both Spurs and Leicester are ready to sign the central defender from Russian outfit Krasnodar, but Liverpool, Wolfsburg and Schalke are also interested.

Sigurdsson, 30, was the man of the match in Iceland’s stunning 2-1 win over England on Monday in the Round of 16, as he scored the equalizer and made several important challenges including a marvelous last-ditch tackle on Jamie Vardy.

After starting his career in Iceland, he spent seven years playing in Sweden and Denmark for IFK Gothenburg and Copenhagen before switching to Krasnodar in 2014. There’s always one player who comes from nowhere to bag a big move after excelling at a major tournament. Sigurdsson could be just one of the many Icelandic players to seal a big transfer this summer.


The Liverpool Echo states that Martin Skrtel is heading to Fenerbache.

Skrtel, 31, captained Slovakia to the EURO 2016 Round of 16 but the center back could be offloaded this summer as Jurgen Klopp welcomes Cameroon defender Joel Matip to Anfield on a free transfer. Skrtel has been at Liverpool for eight years but the bruising central defender may see out his career in Turkey as his antics inside the box may be too risky for Klopp to handle.


Following his two goals for the Republic of Ireland at EURO 2016, winger Robbie Brady could be in line for a move back to the Premier League.

The left-footed Norwich player, 24, is reportedly interesting Leicester and according to the Sun he could join the Foxes for $16 million this summer.

Sunderland, West Brom and Hull City are also said to be interested in signing Brady who was relegated from the PL with Norwich last season. The former Manchester United player has certainly shown his quality on the ball this summer and was one of the stars of Ireland’s brave run to the Round of 16.
