Talks between Coventry City and Arsenal are ‘ongoing‘ over a deal which could see Ben Sheaf join the West Midlands club this summer.
Sky Blues manager Mark Robins has followed up their League One title win and promotion to the Championship with a number of summer arrivals.
Gustavo Hamer signed from PEC Zwolle before Julien Dacosta joined from Chamois Niortais on a free transfer and they have since been joined by three more players. Callum O’Hare was next to be announced as a Coventry signings, agreeing a permanent move from Aston Villa, whilst Marcel Hilssner and Ryan Giles then came on board.
Interest in Sheaf has since followed, with the Sky Blues growing keen on making a move for the Arsenal youngster. The midfielder spent last season on loan with Coventry’s former League One rivals Doncaster Rovers but has since returned to his parent club and his future is unknown.
The 22-year-old has come through the youth ranks at the Emirates Stadium after joining the north London side from West Ham United.
Agreeing a potential move for Sheaf would seem like another excellent addition, with the young defensive midfielder, who scored two goals and assisted two more in 32 League One games last term, impressing in recent months.
A six-figure deal would also be quite a statement by Robins, considering that most of their signings so far have been either free transfers or loan deals.
