The 24 year old could be considering his options with the Toffees struggling for form this term and is the subject of a great deal of interest and Mauricio Pochettino is one of a host of sides keen on the Republic of Ireland international.
Roberto Martinez may fail to keep hold of the former Wigan Athetlic man who is apparently unhappy about the lack of a new contract from the Goodison Park side.
Pochettino is keen to re-shape his squad and has barely used Paulinho or Moussa Dembele this term and could see McCarthy as an ideal strong midfield acquisition.
