Gylfi Sigurdsson may be uncertain about his future at Everton after having a disappointing season under Marco Silva and Carlo Ancelotti.

The 30-year-old was coming off the back of a campaign that saw him contribute 21 goals in 41 games, but he’s been firing blanks this season while being bereft of creativity.

And with Sigurdsson being one of Everton’s highest earners, it’s not surprising that a lot of supporters from Everton FC Group want him gone as soon as possible.

Everton's Cenk Tosun reacts to a missed chance v Southampton

Which club did Everton loan Cenk Tosun out to in January?

Steve Torrens: “Sell…..but somebody will have to want to buy him.”

Jarrod Hartog: “Tom Davies does it better, sell Gylfi.”

Michael Dolton: “He’s been a massive disappointment this season.”

Ellis Vaughan: “Paid far too much for him, we’ll be lucky to shift him on.”

Vinny Pagano: “I would sell.”

Gary Clark: “The stats don’t lie. His contribution is dreadful. He has a worldy in him but rarely delivers. Get rid.”

Rob Cookson: “Sell, off the wage bill – take the loss….. Hard part will be offloading him from £100k per week…. “

David Plant: “Typical example of buying a player at top price after his best days are behind him. Never got near to fulfilling expectations and likely to gradually deteriorate further.”

Lee Garner: “Said it for a while, he has been offering nothing for some time and is often shoehorned into the squad. We need to be looking for other options now. If we can cash in then we should.”

Giovanné Robb: Sell, because he’s getting older and not because of the stats. Gylfi’s main contribution from his time at Everton has always been goals. This season is different.”

Dennis Rose: “Sell the sooner the better.”

Alan Wong: “Get rid. Had more than a chance and brought (nothing) this season.”

Darren Kelly: “Get rid if possible.”

The Icelandic international joined Everton from Swansea City for a club-record fee of £45m in 2017 and has gone on to make 103 appearances in all competitions, scoring 22 goals and making 14 assists.

Sigurdsson has greatly under-performed this season, however, scoring just one goal and making two assists in 26 Premier League appearances, so it’s easy to see why Ancelotti is looking to move him on.

The 30-year-old earns £5.2m-a-year/£100k-a-week at Everton and still has two years left on his deal at Goodison Park, so he could be an expensive flop to hold onto.

Everton are resigned to take a hit on Sigurdsson, but it remains to be seen how much suitors are willing to pay for a soon-to-be 31-year-old midfielder coming off the back of a disappointing campaign.

Fans seem desperate to part company with Gylfi at the next available opportunity.
