Hibs will be keeping an eye on developments south of the border with former player John McGinn as Liverpool take an interest in his services.
McGinn joined Aston Villa from Hibs in 2018 and the Easter Road club inserted a sell-on clause into the deal. It’s set to work out nicely for them at some stage in the future, with Liverpool now interested in the midfielder worth around £50 million.
The Scotland midfielder is also off the back of three good performances at Euro 2020 and midfield is a target area for Liverpool this summer. If McGinn were to move anywhere for a fee of £50 million, Hibs would be due up to 15% of the transfer fee.
Liverpool are said to not want to pay that sort of money for McGinn and would like the £50 million asking price to be lowered (Athletic). Even so, Hibs are still in line to pocket a huge seven-figure fee if McGinn decided to leave Aston Villa for cash.
