Liverpool have joined Manchester United in the race for Aston Villa and Scotland star John McGinn (Sunday Post).
The midfielder is flying at Euro 2020 and bossed the midfield on Friday during a 0-0 draw between England and Scotland. McGinn is said to be on a list of transfer targets for Manchester United and now Liverpool are taking notice.
It has been reported that £50 million would be enough to take McGinn away from Aston Villa, who he joined in 2018 from Hibs. Links to Manchester United appeared just one year after his big move south, McGinn now established at Premier League level with Dean Smith’s side. Liverpool have lost midfielder Georginio Wijnaldum to PSG.
Jurgen Klopp’s side won’t to be put off by a big asking price for McGinn, with £20 million likely to bring Aston Villa to the table for discussions on his future. McGinn is currently preparing for a huge match with Scotland on Tuesday against Croatia.
Only a victory in this match will do if the nation wants to reach the Euro 2020 knockout stages, following a defeat to Czech Republic last Monday and the draw with England.
