Manchester United are allegedly planning to bid for Everton's Seamus Coleman this summer.

Manchester United are allegedly lining up a £15m summer offer for Everton star Seamus Coleman.

Red Devils boss David Moyes is keen to convince the defender to follow him to Old Trafford and has been given the green light to table a bid by the club's board, The Mirror reports.

Coleman has also attracted interest from Arsenal, but United are said to already have an outline agreement in place with Everton to secure the Republic of Ireland international's services.

Moyes previously raided his former club to sign Marouane Fellaini last summer, but failed in his efforts to capture England left-back Leighton Baines.

Coleman joined Everton from Irish minnows Sligo Rovers in 2008 for just £60,000.
