Liverpool’s interest in Aston Villa’s John McGinn ‘very real’

A report from England on Wednesday has credited Liverpool with an interest in Aston Villa star, John McGinn.

McGinn impressing with Aston Villa

John McGinn would join Villa in August of 2018, leaving Scottish side Hibernian for less than £3m.

McGinn has since proven to be quite the bargain for Dean Smith and co.

His debut seaosn in England saw McGinn notch six goals and 10 assists in 40 Championship outings as Villa secured promotion to the Premier League.

The 26-year-old then had some slight injury issues in 2019/20, but still managed to featured 28 times as Villa staved off relegation.

Then, this past season, the Scotsman would score three and assist six in 37 league outings as the Claret and Blue enjoyed a solid 2020/21 to finish in a very respectable 11th.

Liverpool interested in McGinn

Now McGinn, who is contracted to Villa until 2025, appears to have been attracting interest from a top Premier League side.

Liverpool were linked with the Aston Villa standout over the weekend.

And now, The Athletic have provided an update on the situation on Wednesday.

They report that Liverpool’s interest in McGinn is very real. However, it is added that:

There’s no chance of Liverpool landing McGinn for the £20 million fee mentioned in newspaper reports over the weekend.

A fee of at least £45-50m is instead touted, with The Athletic also explaining that whilst Liverpool need a replacement for Georginio Wijnaldum, they need to sell some players before they can buy. Marko Grujic, Divock Origi, Harry Wilson and Neco Williams are the names mentioned as potential sellable assets.

For the time being, however, it is believed the Reds are not in the market for a midfielder.
