Arsenal line up Everton ace

Seamus Coleman (Everton)Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is considering a January move for Everton’s Seamus Coleman, as he looks to secure a replacement for Bacary Sagna, according to reports from CalcioMercato.

The French full-back looks set to leave the Emirates Stadium at the end of the season with his current contract due to expire in just over six months’ time and interest in his services from Ligue 1 sides mounting.

Wenger is keen to snap up a replacement, and has been impressed by Coleman’s start to the 2013/14 campaign.

The Republic of Ireland international has been a key man for the Toffees this term, turning in a number of impressive displays and making himself a major member of Robert Martinez’s starting XI.

The 25-year-old is under contract at Goodison Park until 2018, but Wenger is hopeful that he can lure him to London ether in January or at the end of the season.

Coleman himself is thought to be happy on Merseyside, but could be tempted to join the Gunners in search of regular Champions League football and a realistic chance of competing for silverware on a regular basis.

Sagna is wanted by Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco, with the French duo ready to offer him lucrative deals to return to his homeland.
