Chelsea owner Abramovich driving deal for Wigan youngster McCarthy

Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is chasing Wigan Athletic midfielder James McCarthy.

The People says McCarthy is a personal target for Abramovich, who is taking on a bigger role in transfer negotiations this summer.

The Russian billionaire is filling the void left by Carlo Ancelotti and Frank Arnesen, who have both left the club since the end of the season.

McCarthy, also a target for Liverpool, is a top target for Chelsea.
