Brendon Rodgers's side do not look like they need to strengthen much when it comes to the SPL as they are already 19 points clear and, barring a collapse of huge proportions, they will win the title again.

So any move now would be for next season but it may well be an idea to try and land McCarthy in January rather than wait until the summer where there will be more suitors.
The 26-year-old is under contract at Everton until 2020 so they have no need to sell but he finds first-team football hard to come by. McCarthy has only featured seven times in the Premier League this season so he might be open to a change and a return to his home city of Glasgow.
