Everton aiming to offload £20m international with Premier League trio interested

The Everton fans in the Transfer Tavern are keen to sell James McCarthy this summer so that they can fund a move for Gylfi Sigurdsson.

And that is exactly what they plan to do, according to recent reports.

Everton are set to sell James McCarthy for £20m this summer, according to The Daily Mail.

This will fund a move for Swansea City star Gylfi Sigurdsson as they look to improve their squad ahead of next season.

Ronald Koeman does not favour James McCarthy and prefers other options, such as Idrissa Gueye, Tom Davies and Morgan Schneiderlin in the middle of the park.

Therefore, he will let McCarthy go this summer.

Newcastle United have been long term admirers of the Republic of Ireland international but the Premier League newcomers will face competition from West Ham United and Crystal Palace for his signature.

The Magpies are leading the race as they aim to form a midfield with the 26-year-old with Fulham star Tom Cairney while West Ham and Crystal Palace are also watching him.

Everton are desperate to sign attacking midfielder Sigurdsson this summer with Ross Barkley’s future in major doubt.

If they can ship McCarthy for £20m, then they can fund a move for the Icelandic international.
