One of my favourite players in the Premier League. I think he is a great player who has excelled at a poor club and he actually didn't do too badly at Spurs when he was actually picked.
Some people were saying that a large number of assists and goals come from set pieces, particulary this season, but really who cares? We need a good freekick and corner taker and Siggurdsson is that and a lot more on top of that in open play. He may also lack pace, but his footballing brain seems to get him into the right places.
He also works extremely hard which is something people may not have noticed, but something that will sit very well with our manager:http://www.squawka.com/news/swanseas-gylfi-sigurdsson-has-covered-the-most-distance-in-the-premier-league-this-season/919260#ElpXTcukCmhPFLfy.97
He has the joint highest number of assists in the league this season with 12, equal with Eriksen, playing for a much poorer club. He also has 9 goals in the league this season which is one of the highest for a midfielder.
If we can get him it's a no brainer in my opinion, he is a hard working player with a proven record in the Premier League, he can take corners and freekicks as well, which is something we have lacked or failed to get many goals from recently
On a personal level there are few (realistic) players that I would rather we signed, I'm a huge fan. He is absolutely the type of player we should be signing.
