Manchester United are now the red-hot favourites to sign Everton right-back Seamus Coleman this summer.

The Red Devils are priced at 3/1 with SkyBet to sign the 25-year-old, who has flourished under the management of Spanish coach Roberto Martinez, before the summer transfer window closes on September 2.

Coleman was linked with a £15m move to Old Trafford earlier this year, at the same time Arsenal were reportedly considering signing the Republic of Ireland international as a replacement for Bacary Sagna.

The Gunners have drifted out to 16/1 to sign Coleman, despite the fact Sagna is almost certain to leave the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season. Manchester City are currently in pole position to secure the France international's signature.

Coleman has been in fantastic form this season, scoring six goals in 33 appearances from right-back. But whether Manchester United are still interested in signing the Irishman, despite the recent sacking of David Moyes, is unclear.

Moyes was not a fan of United's current first-choice right-back Rafael, but incoming coach Louis van Gaal is likely to give every first-team player a chance to prove their worth during the opening weeks of the 2014/15 campaign.

Everton, however, would almost certainly demand more than £15m for the player who has cemented his status as one of the Premier League's best right-backs this season.
