Liverpool are set to make a summer move for Irish international midfielder James McCarthy when the transfer window opens in the summer. Kenny Dalglish is said to be a keen admirer of the Wigan midfielder who joined Wigan for £1 million in 2009 from Hamilton. It is understood that Dalglish has had the young 20 year old star who has 3 caps for Ireland already scouted this season.
McCarthy fits perfectly into FSG’s new policy of trying to sign the best young British talent in the game and would be a welcome addition to the Liverpool squad. McCarthy is almost certainly set to be on his way out of Wigan, esepcially of they lose their battle to stay in the premier league which seems very likely as Wigan remain in the bottom three of the table with 3 games left.
McCarthy will not be the only player almost certain to leave Wigan if they get relegated with the likes of Charles N’Zogbia, Hugo Rodallega and Maynor Figueroa also certain to leave.
