Everton to once again raid Wigan

Not content with taking Wigan's manager, backroom team, top scorer and best defender, Everton could now be set to take their best midfielder to Goodison Park as well.

Since winning the FA Cup it has been a tough time for Wigan Athletic, within days they suffered relegation from the Premier League and as soon as the season finished their manager was linked with a move to Everton to replace David Moyes who had taken over at Manchester United following Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement.

Once Roberto Martinez was confirmed as the new Everton gaffer it was obvious that Wigan would see some form of exodus.

Just like Moyes took the majority of his backroom team with him to Old Trafford, Martinez wanted his team with him at Everton and deals were struck to bring them all over to Goodison Park.

Then Everton matched the release clause in striker Arouna Kone's contract and the forward followed Martinez to Everton. Out of contract defender Antolin Alcaraz was next.

Now it could be the turn of Republic of Ireland international James McCarthy according to the Daily Star.

The tabloid has reported that a 12million bid has already been rejected for the 22-year-old and while new Wigan boss Owen Coyle wants 20million, the newspaper believes that a deal in the region of 13.5million could be concluded next week.

Everton have certainly splashed the cash since Roberto Martinez's arrival, the Spaniard certainly can not claim he hasn't been backed by the Everton board if this deal comes off as he will have spent in excess of 20million in just over two weeks!
