Roman Abramovich is ready to make a surprise offer for McCarthy, 20, who only joined Wigan 18 months ago from Hamilton Accies in a £1.25m raid.
The young Irish midfielder has emerged as one of the brightest prospects in the Premier League, however, the West London club may wait until the summer to get him for a cut-price should Wigan get relegated.
