Liverpool are expected to sign a midfielder this summer. However, senior club sources are said to be denying any such plans. Despite these denials rumours persist. According to The Athletic, Liverpool hold a real interest in John McGinn.
Midfield short of numbers
Ok, the midfield may not be short of men. It is short of consistently fit men.
Jürgen Klopp is set to lose his much beloved Gini Wijnaldum.
The Dutchman is leaving for PSG on a free transfer.
As a result the Reds are down a consistent performer, a man who rarely missed a game.
Liverpool need to sign a replacement for Gini if only for his reliability fitness wise.
Liverpool interest in John McGinn
There has already been plenty of names mentioned as potential successors to Wijnaldum.
Florian Neuhaus appeared to be the most likely target for the Reds.
However, The Athletic has reported that Liverpool hold a real interest in John McGinn.
The 26-year-old Scotland midfielder allegedly impressed Jürgen Klopp and his squad last season.
Despite interest in the dynamo a deal is said to be unlikely due to Aston Villa demanding £50m for their all action man.
The midfielder is said to have plenty of admirers with Manchester United keeping an eye on the situation and Yaya Toure raving over the Villa star.
What RTK has to say
Liverpool won’t pay £50m for John McGinn.
He’s good but he isn’t £50m good.
The Reds landing the midfielder could rely on him really wanting the move and pushing for it.
However, we would rather that the Reds didn’t get a rep for having players force their way out of a club for a move to Anfield.
