The highly-rated attacker, who has represented England at youth level, was severely disciplined by manager Arsene Wenger for ripping off his shirt in frustration at being substituted during the Under-19 play-off final against West Ham in May.
Although an undoubted talent, The Gunners agreed to listen to offers for the temperamental hit-man, and Coventry look to have won the race for a player who was also said to be interesting Tottenham.
Bothroyd has still to finalise personal terms with Gordon Strachan`s side, and pass a medical at Highfield Road, but he will be a welcome addition to the West Midlanders` squad.
