Leeds should target Everton defender Seamus Coleman if promoted

Leeds United are fighting for promotion this season in the Championship and are desperate for a return to the Premier League.

The Whites are top of the league table with 14 games left to play, but the race for automatic promotion is extremely tight and there is likely to be plenty of twists.

Marcelo Bielsa will undoubtedly need to improve his team if promoted and one key area should spring to mind if he is planning for top-flight football next year.

Luke Ayling’s inconsistent form has been a concern at Elland Road this campaign and Leeds should search for an upgrade at right-back if promoted.

One man that should crop up on their radar is Everton’s senior player Seamus Coleman, who would be a fine addition at Elland Road.

Coleman has been one of the most consistent right-backs in the Premier League over the last decade and become a real fan favourite at Goodison Park.

 

The 30-year-old has struggled slightly this campaign since returning from a long-term injury and come in for his fair share of criticism.

Everton have already been linked with summer moves for Paris Saint-Germain’s right-back Thomas Meunier (Le10 Sport) and Montpellier’s right-back Ruben Aguilar (Calciomercato).

If Coleman does fall out of favour at Everton, he would be a dream signing for a promoted club in the summer.

The Republic of Ireland internatonal still has time on his side to get back to his best and on his day is a right-sided flyer that bombs forward from full-back.

Leeds’s backroom staff should certainly keep a close eye on the Coleman’s situation, while the team focuses on trying to get over the line for promotion.
