The News of the World says Everton boss David Moyes wants Aussie international McDonald to replace Johnson, but values the former England striker at £10m.

McDonald scored 31 goals last season for the Scottish champions after joining them from Motherwell for £700,000 last summer.

Celtic boss Gordon Strachan could decide to cash in on the 24-year-old striker after completing the signing of Manchester City forward Georgios Samaras.

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is also keeping a close eye on McDonald and could make a move.
