Liverpool boss Dalglish determined to beat Chelsea for McCarthy

Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish wants to trump Chelsea for Wigan Athletic midfielder James McCarthy.

The People says Dalglish is determined to land Glasgow-born Ireland starlet McCarthy as part of a major summer overhaul.

And the legendary manager thinks that he can persuade McCarthy to pick Merseyside ahead of London for his next move, which looks increasingly like coming at the end of the season.

Chelsea wanted to land McCarthy in January and are still in the chase for him – although the exit of director of football Frank Arnesen leaves a ­question mark over their desperation for him.
