Report: Bayern Munich join race to sign Everton star Seamus Coleman

Bayern Munich are reportedly interested in Everton star Seamus Coleman.

Bayern Munich have joined the race to sign Everton defender Seamus Coleman, the Daily Star reports.

The talented defender, 26, is a player reportedly in demand ahead of the upcoming transfer deadline day, with a recent report in the Mirror accrediting Paris Saint-Germain with an interest in him.

Coleman has far played every minute of every Premier League encounter so far this season for the Toffees, a clear indication of how important he is to the club.

The Star acknowledges PSG’s interest, but the report goes onto say that Pep Guardiola’s Bundesliga champions are also considering a move for Coleman, having tracked him since January.

Could Seamus Coleman end up at Bayern Munich?

As Everton’s refusal to sell John Stones to Chelsea illustrate, the club are far from easy to negotiate with and Coleman is evidently regarded as a key first-team member.

The biggest doubt in terms of any proposed Bayern deal is fact that the German giants are well equipped in numbers and quality at the back, with right-back Philipp Lahm still a regular starter.

Coleman, a 28-capped Republic of Ireland international, is renowned for his huge energy levels and marauding runs in the Premier League, but his style doesn’t really match that of Guardiola’s.

The former Barcelona boss has been under pressure in Bavaria, and if he is going to make any new signings before the window closes they will surely come in the form of a dominant central midfielder.
