‘Real asset’, ‘quality’: Some Everton fans want new contract for £100k-a-week star

A number of Everton fans have called on the Goodison Park hierarchy to give Toffees midfielder Gylfi Sigurdsson a new contract.

The 31-year-old has been in great form this season, making 25 Premier League appearances and 32 in all competitions.

Sigurdsson has been especially impressive the past few months, working relentlessly and providing plenty of goal contributions.

The Iceland international scored in the 2-0 win over Liverpool and assisted Richarlison for the winning goals against Southampton and West Brom.

Sigurdsson’s £100,000-a-week contract expires at the end of next season, and according to the Liverpool Echo, Everton have yet to formally hold talks.

By the time his current deal expires, he’ll be pushing 33, so if the Toffees were to offer him a new deal, how long would it be for and how much would he be offered?

And if both parties decided to part ways, would he be sold in the summer – he likely wouldn’t have much resale value – or would he be kept on until his deal expires?

Plenty of points to ponder, but one thing’s for sure – quite a few Evertonians seem keen on him to get a new deal, as per the below Twitter comments:
