Liverpool go cold on Wigan midfielder McCarthy

Wigan Athletic are confident keeping hold of Liverpool target James McCarthy.

The Wigan Observer says Kenny Dalglish has been keeping a close eye on McCarthy, who played an instrumental role in securing survival for Latics last season.

And despite Liverpool still interested in bolstering their midfield selection, they're now set to focus on Blackpool's Charlie Adam with Stewart Downing and Connor Wickham.

Latics have slapped a £20m price tag on their Irish international which Liverpool have been reluctant to even come close to.

And with all three of their other targets expected to cost the Reds less, they are set to turn their attentions on them.
