Gylfi Sigurdsson will decide whether to join Liverpool or Tottenham in the next 24 hours, according to his father.
Reports last week suggested the Hoffenheim midfielder, who impressed last season on loan at Swansea, had already opened talks with Liverpool about a move to Anfield.
But in recent days it emerged that a move to Spurs was edging closer after the north London club agreed a fee, believed to be in the region of £8million, with the Bundesliga outfit.
It is believed the Icelandic mdifielder has already agreed personal terms with Tottenham, although Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has not admitted defeat in luring the 22-year-old to Merseyside.
And Sigurdur Adalsteinsson said: "Gylfi wants to play at the highest level possible – every player wants to do that – but the opportunity has to be right.
"He hasn’t made up his mind yet. There are plenty of clubs interested in him. There are some in Germany, but Gylfi wants to play in England.
"The main aim for Gylfi is to be in as good a team as he can be and play for the best club possible.
"He is no different to anyone else.
"Liverpool and Tottenham are both in Europe next season so that is not the question.
"I have seen the stories that he is demanding a certain amount of money per week and they are rubbish. He just wants a normal salary and to be on the same as other players at the club.
"The bottom line is he just wants to play and the main thing football-wise is to find the right team which will suit him the most.
"It always helps when you know the coach like Brendan Rodgers. He is a very good trainer. But does that mean Liverpool? Maybe, maybe not.
"He is thinking what is best to do and will have a decision by Sunday."
Arsenal, Manchester United, and Newcastle have also been linked with Sigurdsson in recent weeks.
