Manchester United & Arsenal to battle for £20m-rated star

Manchester United and Arsenal are both keen on signing Everton right-back Seamus Coleman this summer, according to the Daily Mail.

However, the Premier League giants could be joined by AC Milan in the race to sign the 25-year-old.

Coleman has exceeded expectations at Goodison Park this season. Indeed, it's no exaggeration to suggest that the Republic of Ireland international has been the Premier League's standout right-back so far this term.

Everton are reluctant to sell the in-form full-back, although that is unlikely to deter David Moyes, who paid a bargain £60,000 fee to bring him to the Toffees from Sligo Rovers in 2009.

Arsenal, meanwhile, are considering Coleman as a possible replacement for Bacary Sagna, whose current contract expires at the end of the season.

And Milan boss Clarence Seedorf has been recommended Coleman as a potential replacement for Ignazio Abate.

But would the mauraulding defender prefer to link up with his former manager at Old Trafford?

This latest report comes less than 48 hours after the Mirror linked Manchester United with a £45m double swoop for Coleman and Southampton left-back Luke Shaw.

Coleman is reportedly valued at £20m, which could be enough to tempt Everton boss Roberto Martinez into selling.
