Burnley have discussed a move for Everton's James McCarthy, The Mail reports in its Monday transfer blog.
McCarthy has only started seven Premier League games throughout Ronald Koeman's Everton reign, and is said to be ready to leave the Merseyside club this summer.
Nevertheless, it is claimed that Everton want more than £20 million to part with the Republic of Ireland midfielder.

However, with McCarthy also said to have interest from Newcastle United and Aston Villa, it is claimed the 26-year-old may not fancy a move to Burnley.
The Clarets could be seeking McCarthy as a replacement for Steven Defour, who the tabloid reports is looking to leave Turf Moor.
