Matt Law of the Telegraph reports that once Sigurdsson's sale to Everton is finalised, Swansea hope to reinvest part of the funds into a deal for Bony, with Manchester City valuing the player at £13million - around half of what they paid Swansea for him in January 2015. I heard some rumours that the talks broke down but we are still in negotiations with Swansea. The former Chelsea assistant manager also spoke of his desire to extend Llorente's contract and has been encouraged by his recent discussions with the Spaniard, who is set to miss his side's pre-season opener against Southampton after suffering a broken arm while on holiday.
"That makes us feel that if we play well and the team we are playing don't play so well, we can get a result anywhere".
Swans boss Paul Clement has repeatedly come out and said "We refuse to let this drag on and affect our season", but hasn't it already?
Clement, who heavily counted on him last season, is resigned to losing his mercurial playmaker and has not included him in their opening weekend game away to Southampton.
Clement added: "At the moment no (he will not play this Saturday)".
"There is no deal done with any club, talks are ongoing".
"The situation is our club has a valuation of the player, the other club has another valuation of the player and the two have not met".
"Gylfi is an outstanding player and if he was to go I know it would be with a heavy heart", Rodgers said.
"I think the way it's going I think there needs to be more than likely a compromise on both sides".
"I hope it will be resolved quickly, that would be best for everyone, maybe it will happen when we don't expect it".
He said: "Tom is very good and he has got some excellent deliveries from his left foot".
Llorente has been subject to reported interest from Premier League champions Chelsea over the course of the summer, but Clement seems adamant that he is going nowhere.
