Will Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente leave Swansea this summer? 1 Swansea are planning swift talks to resolve the futures of star men Gylfi Sigurdsson and Fernando Llorente after retaining their Premier League status.Iceland playmaker Sigurddson and Spain striker Llorente are expected to be in big demand after playing prominent roles in Swansea’s successful battle against relegation.Nine-goal Sigurdsson is top of the Premier League assists charts with 13, while no one has scored more headers in the division than 14-goal Llorente.“You always want to keep your best players and they’ve been excellent all season,” Swansea head coach Paul Clement said of Sigurdsson and Llorente on Sky Sports.“We’re going to have those discussions this weekend and in the early days of next week to decide how we move forward – myself, the chairman Huw Jenkins and our two main owners, Steve Kaplan and Jason Levien.“But hopefully they have enjoyed being part of what we’ve done in the second half of the season.“Hopefully they realise that we’re a good club, they’ve got good team-mates and they really want to stay here as well. I hope they do.”Swansea’s first signing of the summer could be assistant manager Claude Makelele, who joined the club following Clement’s appointment in January.Clement says former Chelsea and France midfielder Makelele is close to agreeing a new contract, and the former Real Madrid and Bayern Munich number two is also planning to add to his playing squad.“We are going to look at doing some things in the summer because we want to be stronger next season,” said Clement, who steered Swansea to safety by taking 26 points from 18 games after they had picked up only 12 from their first 19 matches.“But I am very happy with the way the players performed and I don’t see massive changes.”
