The former Reds centre-back admits he is a big fan of the Republic of Ireland international, and feels he could be a perfect signing for Brendan Rodgers’ side, if a bit unrealistic due to the heated rivalry between the two Merseyside clubs.
“I love McCarthy, I think he’s a brilliant player,” Carragher said.
“If there was one player I could take from Everton to Liverpool, it would be James McCarthy. I think he’s just got to add goals.
“Jordan Henderson was maybe at that stage a year ago, where you really like what you see but there could be a few more goals or assists to take him up another level.”
