Coventry City are keen on bringing Arsenal’s Ben Sheaf to the club this summer, according to Coventry Telegraph.
Sky Blues manager Mark Robins has been busy in the transfer window preparing for the new season as he looks to build a squad capable of taking on the hustle and bustle of the Championship.
Callum O’Hare was next to be announced as a Coventry player, agreeing a permanent move from Aston Villa, whilst Marcel Hilssner’s signing was then announced and that was followed up by a deal to bring in Ryan Giles.
They could be followed by another new signing in Sheaf, who has been strongly linked with a switch to the Sky Blues.
The midfielder spent last season on loan with Coventry’s former League One rivals Doncaster Rovers but has since returned to parent club Arsenal.
The 22-year-old has come through the youth ranks at the Emirates Stadium after joining the north London side from West Ham United during his youth.
Coventry Telegraph now cite a report in The Sun on Sunday which claimed that a six-figure bid has been made by Coventry for the youngster.
Robins is making a real name for himself at Coventry, gaining promotion and then following that up with some shrewd signings.
Agreeing a potential move for Sheaf would seem like another excellent addition, with the Sky Blues potentially gaining a talented young defensive midfielder who scored two goals and assisted two more in 32 League One games last term.
