Aston Villa and Scotland star John McGinn is reportedly a transfer target for fellow Premier League side Everton (Teamtalk).

The battler was back in full training at Villa following an ankle fracture at the end of 2019 recently. His return has been put on hold due to the suspension of league football in Britain, but that hasn’t prevented reported Everton interest.

McGinn’s made 20 appearances this term with three goals and two assists for Dean Smith’s side. He also has six goals in his last three for Scotland.

Stepped up

Transitioning from Premiership star in Scotland, to Championship level and then the Premier League, McGinn has continually moved up the gears where and when required.

His form had reportedly caught the eye of Manchester United earlier this season but nothing came to fruition. Everton are the next big team to be mentioned with a move for the Scots international.

Big offers will be hard for Villa to turn down after a big-spending summer and interest is reportedly arising in McGinn from their Merseyside competitors and two other Premier League outfits.

McGinn is certainly a very capable footballer at the highest level and others are seemingly aware of that too.
