A number of Liverpool fans are in positive spirits about the Reds signing Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn following a report suggesting as such.
Jurgen Klopp will surely be keen to make a few new signings this summer in addition to Ibrahima Konate, who has already joined from RB Leipzig.
Gini Wijnaldum’s exit to Paris Saint-Germain is likely to leave a sizeable void in Liverpool’s midfield, so a new signing there wouldn’t go amiss.
Borussia Monchengladbach ace Florian Neuhaus has been tipped to join the Reds a number of times, but now McGinn’s name has been thrown into the mix. The Sunday Post (Post Match pullout, 20/06, p2) [via LFC Transfer Room on Twitter] claimed that the Scotland international is on Liverpool’s radar, with the midfielder being valued at £20m.
The 26-year-old started all but one of Aston Villa’s Premier League games last term, with three goals and six assists to his name (Transfermarkt), while only Jack Grealish averaged more than his 1.4 dribbles per game among Dean Smith’s squad (WhoScored).
Liverpool fans want Reds to sign McGinn
These Liverpool supporters took to Twitter to call for the Reds to sign McGinn, believing that he would be a strong addition in the middle of the park.
“I actually rate him so highly, would love this signing“
“Quite like this….we need a hard working ball-winner in the midfield. John fits the bill. Sure he’s not £100m but he’d still take Pogba down“
“He’d be perfect for the Reds“
“I’d actually rate that“
“My analogy of John McGinn: He’s a young James Milner. So I’m not against it.“
“What a player! Would love McGinn at Liverpool“
