Skysports.com understand Wigan are keen on Portsmouth's Matthew Taylor.Skysports.com understand Wigan are lining up a shock swoop for Portsmouth's Matthew Taylor.
Wigan boss Paul Jewell admitted earlier this week that he may be forced to delve into the transfer market because of the injury crisis at The JJB Stadium.
It is believed that Taylor is one of Jewell's top targets as his versatility makes him an attractive proposition.
Taylor has been one of the bright spots for Portsmouth this season and Jewell is thought to be a big fan of the former Luton ace.
Jewell is keen to strengthen his squad for the second half of the season so that they can build on their bright start to life in The Premiership.
Taylor has established himself as a key figure at Fratton Park since arriving at the club in 2002.
However, with Harry Redknapp being busy in the transfer market it means some players could find themselves out of the team.
Pompey are likely to be keen to keep Taylor, but a big offer from Wigan could tempt them as they look to bring in funds after their recent spending spree.
