Everton eyeing Wigan midfielder Maloney

Everton are being linked with Wigan Athletic midfielder Shaun Maloney.

The Daily Mail says Everton manager Roberto Martinez is seeking a January reunion with Scotland's Euro 2016 hero Maloney.

Martinez travelled to Glasgow to see Maloney score an outstanding winning goal against the Republic of Ireland during the international break and is keen to bring the 31-year-old midfielder to Goodison before his contract runs out in the summer.

Maloney was signed by Martinez at Wigan in 2011 from Celtic and helped the club win the FA Cup last year.

MLS club Chicago Fire have reportedly shown an interest while other Premier League clubs are monitoring the situation.
