Speculative stories in England suggest that Manchester United are preparing a £15million to secure the services of Seamus Coleman from Everton.
The 25-year-old has had an exceptional campaign to date with the Merseyside club and win at West Brom tonight can take Everton into the top four.
The Killybegs native has found the net on six occasions with the most recent being in the 4-0 win against Queen’s Park Rangers in the third round of the FA Cup earlier this month.
United manager David Moyes, when he was in charge at Goodison Park, took Coleman to the Premier League for just £60,000 from Sligo Rovers back in 2009.
United’s interest in Coleman will come as a blow to Arsenal, who see the player as an ideal replacement for Bacary Sagna, should he leave in the summer. Sagna has already been offered a four-year deal by Turkish club Galatasaray.
Moyes has already brought former midfielder Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini to Old Trafford for a fee of £27.5m back in the August transfer window.
It’s also well known that Moyes is a keen admirer of Everton full-back Leighton Baines, as well as Coleman.
