Newcastle United seem to be giving up trying to convince French man Yohan Cabaye to stay as according to reports, they are now interested in signing former Arsenal target James McCarthy from Wigan. It seems almost certain that Newcastle United will lose Cabaye to either Arsenal or PSG and as such, they are making moves to replace him before the window closes.
It is believed Wigan want 15 million pounds for the high rated midfielder which is discouraging Newcastle who are likely to get less than 15 million for Cabaye. Aside Newcastle United, Everton are also interested in James McCarthy.
If reports are to be believed, Arsenal will be making a new bid of slightly over 13 million pounds which they believe will be good enough to convince Newcastle United to see the French star. Although PSG may blow Arsenal out of the race with a higher bid. However, Cabaye has decided to remain in England and has set his mind on joining Arsenal which means PSG may actually have little or no chance of signing the midfielder.
