Celtic target Crystal Palace midfielder James McCarthy

Celtic are targeting Crystal Palace midfielder James McCarthy.

Eurosport says the Hoops are 'working hard on a recruitment plan' to sign Crystal Palace's McCarthy.

The Hoops are said to have been chasing the 30-year-old Glaswegian for months.

They believe the boyhood Celtic fan is the type of player who could 'invigorate' the side as they look to close the 16-point gap on Scottish premiership rivals Rangers.

McCarthy is aware of the interest from Parkhead.

And he is believed to be keen on the move due to his lack of match action at Palace.

But Celtic need to raise some cash and make room in their squad by offloading some of their players first.

The report states they will consider selling Olivier Ntcham.
