Liverpool will move for a midfielder this summer. Jürgen Klopp has lost one of his most influential players, signing a successor is a necessity. According to the Sunday Post, Liverpool are interested in John McGinn at Aston Villa.
Liverpool midfield situation
Gini Wijnaldum is leaving Liverpool this summer.
After five years establishing himself as a modern day icon of the club he’s joining PSG on a free transfer.
The Dutchman was a nigh on ever present in the Premier League, we need to sign a successor as a matter of urgency.
Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are too unreliable fitness wise and Curtis Jones may not be ready to assume Gini’s role in the side.
Liverpool want John McGinn
Florian Neuhaus appears to have emerged as a top Liverpool target. However, the Reds may have turned their attention elsewhere.
The report has claimed that Aston Villa would want £50m for their Scotland international.
A hard working, industrious and press resistant midfielder, the Villa man racked up 37 appearances in the Premier League last season.
He netted three and assisted five during the Villain’s impressive campaign.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool moving for McGinn would make sense stylistically but not financially.
The Reds aren’t going to pay anywhere near £50m for the Scotland man.
There are better targets out there who would cost much less than the 26-year-old.
Would we want him? Sure, just not at that price.
