Former Premier League star Darren Bent believes Everton should sanction the sale of Gylfi Sigurdsson during the next transfer window in order to land a younger replacement. The Icelandic footballer has been a valuable performer over the years but he has struggled for form this term with just one goal and two assists from 26 league games.
As a result, there has been doubts regarding his future with the Toffees and Bent believes it could be time to part ways with Sigurdsson to sign a player of Jack Grealish’s calibre, he told: “I think it might be time for them (to sell). If they’re going after someone like a Grealish or a Jesse Lingard. We know Sigurdsson’s got ability, we know how good he is, he’s brilliant – technically, he’s very, very good.
