The 24 year old was recently named Player of the Season at Bolton Wanderers, where he spent the majority of the last campaign.
The Latics are also said to be close to agreeing a deal for former Reds goalkeeper Scott Carson.
Elswhere, Monaco look set to beat Liverpool to the signing of left-back Lucas Digne.
The 19 year old racked up 40 appearances for Ligue 1 side Lyon last season, drawing interest from a host of European heavyweights, though billionaire-backed Monaco are set to win the race for the France under 20 international.
