Tottenham are readying a phenomenal player-plus-cash bid for Everton midfielder James McCarthy, recent reports from Goal suggest.
Mauricio Pochettino is looking to strengthen his midfield still, despite Ryan Mason signing a new contract, tying him down until at least 2020.
Spurs were set to make Morgan Schneiderlin their main transfer target for the January window, but it looks like him and Adrien Rabiot may not sign for the Londoners before February 2nd.
McCarthy has become an integral part of the Everton team in recent weeks, hence Tottenham targeting him this January. However, a deal could be more complicated than it seems.
Everton are not having the best of times this season, and sit in the bottom half of the table after a 0-0 draw with West Brom. The club’s current woes could tempt him into moving away.
Mauricio Pochettino is looking to offload some fringe players, Younes Kaboul and Aaron Lennon are though to be the most appealing to Everton in a deal that could be worth around £20m.
