Everton right-back, Seamus Coleman, may have a tough decision in the coming weeks, as offers from his current club and Arsenal are expected to be tabled.
The defender has made 34 appearances for the Merseyside club this season, scoring 6 goals and has become a vital part of Roberto Martinez’s team. With faultless performances throughtout the season, Coleman has emerged as one of the best right-backs in the premier league.
Coleman is currently earning £30,000 a week at Everton after accepting a recent contract extension, but this has not stopped Arsenal from holding interest in the player, as they are reportedly willing to double the defender’s wages with a bumper deal.
Everton are expected to try and hold off interest for Coleman with a new contract expected to be tabled by themselves. However, the prospect of Champions League football for Coleman next season may be the deciding factor on where his future lies. Manchester United were said to be front-runners for his signature, but with the recent departure of David Moyes, a move to Old Trafford seems unlikely.
With Arsenal right-back Bacary Sagna’s future in doubt at the club, it seems that Arsenal see Coleman as the perfect fit for the gap that may be left.
