Newly-appointed Swansea boss Garry Monk is reportedly a long-term admirer of the former-England U21 international, and will bid around £3 milion to bring him to the Liberty Stadium.

However The Royals would probably demand closer to £5 million if they were to allow their star man to leave.

McCarthy would replace Michel Vorm, who is rumoured to be on the verge of a move out of Wales.

Swansea would face competition for the player’s signature from Arsenal, who have sent scouts to watch the former Wycombe trainee.

Back-up ‘keeper Lukasz Fabianski is expected to leave The Gunners at the end of the season and manager Arsene Wenger sees McCarthy as the perfect competiton to current No.1  Wojciech Szczesny.
