Villa’s John McGinn is on Leicester’s summer transfer wishlist

It was reported recently that Leicester City would be interested in signing Aston Villa’s John Mcginn if their rivals are relegated. A huge fee is expected.

Some transfer rumours are capricious and others appear even fanciful. While certain hearsay is actual appropriate, theoretically sound and realistic. May I just say that the last description fits Leicester City prospectively signing Aston Villa’s John McGinn perfectly.

If the Villa man is in fact on the Foxes’ radar legitimately, or a bid materializes, then many City supporters will be delighted. The Scotsman is a particularly adept midfielder; one who has attracted the apparent attention of Manchester United, as have many Leicester players.

Only if the Villans are relegated will an offer emerge for McGinn from Brendan Rodgers’ team, as per The Boot Room, via The Times. Rodgers is known to rate the midfield man highly – trying to desperately sign him when manager of Celtic is a bit of a giveaway.

Right now the Glasgow-born player will be training hard for a return to help his side avoid the drop. McGinn suffered a serious injury around Christmas and has been sidelined since. Although he is a very classy and talented athlete, the supposed £50 million valuation is possibly a bit expensive.

In other news from Filbert Way and the Premier League by extension, the Foxes were denied the chance to alter their 25-man squad. Therefore forgotten Polish player, Bartosz Kapustka, has probably witnessed his final chance with the East Midlanders evaporate. Expect him to leave the club during this transfer window.
