Gylfi Sigurdsson will undergo a medical at Everton on Wednesday ahead of joining the club in a deal worth up to £45million, and one which will have an effect on a Manchester City transfer.
With that protracted deal coming to a successful climax, Swansea City will press ahead with plans to sign Nacer Chadli from West Brom and Wilfried Bony from City.
And according to Stuart James of The Guardian, a deal in principle is already in place for 28-year-old Bony to re-join his former club after an unhappy stint at the Etihad.
He is expected to return to south Wales for a fee of around £13million, a considerable loss on what City splashed out for him in 2015, but unsurprising given the outcome of his stay in Manchester.
For City, it will also mean another big wage off the books in what has been quite a productive summer on that front, with fewer big names loaned than sold this year. Samir Nasri and Eliaquim Mangala remain the big earners who could go, but have yet to, with the latter possibly in line for a move to Inter Milan should Pep Guardiola sanction a sale.
