Leicester City have reportedly made an enquiry for Everton midfielder James McCarthy.
The Daily Mail claims the Foxes have approached Everton over the availability of McCarthy, with the Toffees slapping a £25 million price tag on the Republic of Ireland international. The 26-year-old looks increasingly like his time at Goodison Park is coming to an end after an injury-riddled 2016-17 season, which saw him limited to just 12 Premier League appearances, and the January signing of Morgan Schneiderlin. But despite serious uncertainty surrounding his future, it remains to be seen if Leicester are willing to table a bid on par with Everton's valuation. Although the Foxes look set to lose Papy Mendy to Bordeaux this summer, manager Craig Shakespeare still has plenty of options in central midfield—Danny Drinkwater, Andy King, Wilfred Ndidi, Daniel Amartey and summer signing Vicente Iborra.
