Blues linked with swoop for Wigan midfielder
The Republic of Ireland international was watched by Jimmy Lumsden last weekend according to The People newspaper, when he was in blistering form.
McCarthy signed for Wigan from Hamilton Academical in 2009 on a five year deal worth a reported £1.2m and is on big wages at The DW Stadium, but Everton boss David Moyes is believed to be keeping tabs on him as a replacement should Marouane Fellaini leave in the upcoming window.
