Roberto Martinez wants to bring James McCarthy and Aruna Kone to Goodison Park.
Owen Coyle has said that none of his Wigan stars have to leave the club for less than their worth according to the Daily Mirror.
Wigan stars James McCarthy and Aruna Kone have been linked with a move to former boss Roberto Martinez’s new club Everton, with the Spaniard hoping to sign two players who were influential during his time at Wigan.
However, new Wigan boss Owen Coyle has warned Martinez that McCarthy and Kone won’t be sold on the cheap despite the clubs relegation from the Premier League.
When asked about the availability of the two players, Coyle said, “Nobody has to leave on the cheap, if someone is leaving, it will be for the full value”.
Coyle is hoping to keep the pair at Wigan as they prepared for life in the Championship.
Both McCarthy and Kone could be important players for the club as they try and get back into the Premier League at the first time of asking.
However, Martinez wants to bring the pair to Everton and had been hoping to sign them in a cut price deal but after Coyle’s comments that doesn’t look like happening.
McCarthy is rated at £15 million and Kone at £5 million, so Everton may have to pay £20 million to sign the pair if Coyle has his way.
