Blackburn join race for John McGinn

Blackburn join race for John McGinn

Celtic will have their sights set firmly on securing the treble once again this season after enjoying an emphatic campaign last time round. 

The Hoops haven’t exactly made the biggest of moves on the transfer front as Brendan Rodgers seems to be pretty pleased with his current squad. Worryingly, the Glasgow side did suffer a setback in their pursuit of Rodgers’ primary target recently, as according to the Daily Record (Scottish Sun), Blackburn have joined the race to sign Hibernian’s John McGinn.

Celtic may face more competition to land John McGinn as Blackburn Rovers have reportedly entered the hunt for his signature.

The Hoops have had two bids rejected for the midfielder with Hibernian demanding at least £3 million for their star.

Interestingly, the 23-year-old has just one year left on his Easter Road deal and is free to agree a pre-contract with other clubs from January.

Worryingly, it’s understood that Tony Mowbray is mulling over a bid for the midfielder.

THE VERDICT:

Celtic will be desperate to land John McGinn this summer having put all of their eggs in his basket for the majority of the transfer window. But, with Blackburn Rovers joining the race and Tony Mowbray reportedly mulling over a bid for the midfielder, the Hoops could lose out on their man.

Indeed, the Glasgow side could do with a central midfielder as Scott Brown continues to age, so they’ll need to do everything they can to secure the impressive Scotsman this summer.
