Brendan Rodgers says he will do all he can to keep Gylfi Sigurdsson at Swansea and hopes Scott Sinclair will also sign a new deal.
Sigurdsson is currently on-loan at the Liberty Stadium until the end of the season from Bundesliga outfit Hoffenheim but Rodgers is keen to keep him on a permanent basis following some fantastic displays in midfield.
The Icelandic star bagged another two goals at the weekend in the 3-0 win at Fulham and Rodgers is hoping that the German club agree to sell the £6million rated star.
"We have spoken to his agent and I've made the chairman aware of my feelings but, ultimately, it's whether Hoffenheim want to sell him," he said.
"We needed a goal-scoring midfielder and he has fitted in well with this group of players."
Rodgers also fears that the player's performances may have alerted other clubs who could try and take him elsewhere in the summer, while there is also a danger the price could get hiked up.
Meanwhile Rodgers says talks are ongoing with Sinclair in the hope he will sign a new deal."There have been initial discussions," he added. "He's very happy here. It's not been put on the back-burner.
"He knows he's in a great place to develop so, hopefully, we can agree a new deal."
