The Scottish international midfielder shone at Wigan following Uwe Rosler's appointment as manager, and played a starring role as they made the play-offs.

Wigan bowed out to Queens Park Rangers earlier this week and now the Latics face a battle to hang-on to McArthur, as a number of Premier League clubs are understood to be weighing up an offer.

McArthur, 26, has two years left on his current deal and Wigan are keen to extend this - but it remains to be seen if they can fend off the top-flight interest.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche is understood to be a big fan of McArthur and sources have confirmed to Sky Sports that a bid could be imminent.
