Aston Villa: Fans react to Liverpool’s McGinn and Watkins interest - Aston Villa

Liverpool have been credited with an interest in Aston Villa’s John McGinn and Ollie Watkins.

And, as to be expected, a number of Villa fans have been reacting to the rumours linking Jurgen Klopp’s side with the two Villa stars.

According to Goal, relayed by Birmingham Live, Watkins is a player the Reds ‘like’.

Midfielder McGinn is also thought to be of interest to Liverpool, with Manchester United also linked with a move for the Scot.

Villa fans! Which club did AVFC sign James Milner from?

McGinn and Watkins were ever-present figures under Dean Smith last season, with the pair missing just one Premier League game apiece during the 2020/21 campaign.

Watkins was Villa’s second-best top-flight performer behind Jack Grealish, as per WhoScored, whereas McGinn outperformed the likes of Marvelous Nakamba, Douglas Luiz and Morgan Sanson.

Where will Villa finish this season?

Villa fans react

@AVFC_News shared the Reds’ reported interest in the Villa pair on Twitter.

This is what these Villa supporters had to say in reply, with one describing the rumour as ‘garbage’.

“So “big 6″ teams are looking at raiding us for Grealish McGinn and Watkins. Absolute madness to let any of them go. We want to get into the top 4 and just can’t do it if we continue the policy of strengthening our opponents and weaken ourselves”

“Salah, Mane, TAA and £200 million and only then would we think about it. Till then, night night”

“Garbage! Watkins is going nowhere.”

“In their scouser dreams”

“Liverpool have got absolutely no chance”

“Leave us alone”
