Transfer battle: Luton Town close to sign Coventry City star in a deal worth £10 million

Ben Sheaf of Coventry City is apparently the target of Luton Town, who are prepared to make an opening bid.


Luton Town made a possible £10 million deal in an attempt to get Ben Sheaf as Ross Barkley’s replacement.

Ben Sheaf has demonstrated that he is a remarkable Championship performer, drawing interest from numerous clubs.

The transfer market may be active during the summer, as Coventry City’s competition for a captain is expected to intensify.
According to Alan Nixon’s Patreon, Luton Town is prepared to make a preliminary offer for Ben Sheaf, a midfielder for Coventry City.

Aston Villa appears to be close to completing a deal for England international midfielder Ross Barkley, 30, and Luton is eager to replace Barkley with Coventry star Ben Sheaf. The Hatters, who were just relegated from the Premier League, could lose Barkley.

With parachute payments at their disposal, Rob Edwards’ team will have the financial means to outspend the majority of its second-tier competitors as they aim to return to the Premier League as soon as possible.

Ben Sheaf is of interest to Luton Town.

Ben Sheaf, a former player for Arsenal, has been a standout for Coventry City in recent years. He helped the team advance to the play-off final the previous year and then to the FA Cup semifinal this past month.

Rob Edwards has shown an obvious admiration for his achievements, and according to Alan Nixon, the Hatters will need to come up with top Championship wages and pay more than £10 million to Sheaf in order to move him from the CBS Arena to Kenilworth Road.
Sheaf will lead Coventry City under Mark Robins should he stay with the team, according to Coventry Live. The Hatters will have a difficult time luring the former Arsenal player to the team this summer.

Luton wants to invest a significant portion of their parachute money in the 26-year-old, but they may have competition as Sheaf is apparently wanted by both Fulham and Ipswich.

Sheaf would be able to play Premier League games for both Fulham and Ipswich, but Luton won’t be able to offer him that. However, if Sheaf decides to leave Coventry in the near future, the assurance of starting for Kenilworth Road may influence his choice.

Luton’s attempt to sign Sheaf is expected to put Coventry City to the test, and the Sky Blues will likely have a busy summer with transfer interest.
