James Beatie could make a surprise move to Wigan Athletic in the next few weeks
Everton manager David Moyes is willing to let Beatie for £2 million and this as alerted Latics boss Chris Hutchings.
Being desperately short of firepower was one of the reasons for last seasons struggle at the JJB
Although Beatie`s not exactly set the world on fire whilst at Everton he does have some pedigree.
Whist at the south coast club he scored 76 goals in 235 appearances which led to £6 million move to Everton in January 2005.
He`s played 86 matches for the Toffee men scoring 15 times.
Would Beatie had fire power to the Latics forward line?
