Skysports.com understands Wigan and Hearts have joined the chase for Motherwell striker Ross McCormack.
McCormack is weighing up his options with his current contract at Fir Park due to expire in the summer.
The 21-year-old is free to speak to interested clubs and he has already held talks with Middlesbrough over a possible move to Teesside.
Motherwell are hoping to keep the former Rangers starlet and are preparing a new deal to extend his stay in Lanarkshire.
McCormack's agent John Brown has confirmed Wigan and Hearts have shown an interest in the forward and that Motherwell are readying a new deal in a bid to keep him at the club.
"I have talked to Mark McGhee today and he is looking at offering Ross a contract to keep him at the club," Brown told skysports.com
"We will wait and see what Motherwell offer, but Ross is keeping his options open.
"He is free to talk to interested clubs and I have had a chat with Hearts about him as they have been tracking him for some time.
"I believe Wigan are coming to watch in Tuesday's Scottish Cup clash with Hearts after receiving good reports on Ross.
"Middlesbrough made an offer for Ross but he felt it did not match the valuation of what we wanted.
"Ross has five months left on his contract and we will listen to all offers."
