Everton will reportedly try and prise Malky Mackay from Cardiff should David Moyes leave the club at the end of the season.
Moyes has admitted his side look set to miss out on a top-four finish following Saturday's defeat at Sunderland and a top-five finish, which would secure a place in the Europa League, also looks unlikely following Spurs' win over Manchester City on Sunday.
There has been speculation throughout the campaign that manager Moyes could walk away from Goodison Park when his contract comes to an end in the summer if the club miss out on European football.
The Sunday Mirror have now reported that Mackay, who led Cardiff to the Championship title this season, is a leading contender to take charge of Everton if Moyes decides to call time on his stay with the Merseyside club.
However, Cardiff are keen to keep hold of the Scottish manager and Everton could face a big battle to secure their reported top target.
