Brendan Rodgers wanted Aston Villa’s John McGinn at Celtic but now he could bring him to Leicester City

John McGinn is a target for Leicester City.

Since taking over at Leicester City recently, ex-Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has already been linked with a number of players.

And the latest player to be linked with a switch to The King Power Stadium is Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn, The Daily Mirror reports.

This will come as no surprise to Celtic fans after the Glasgow club was involved in a transfer tussle for McGinn last summer.

 

According to BBC Sport, Hibernian were expecting Rodgers’ Celtic to submit a third bid for McGinn but he moved to Aston Villa instead.

And with a play-off spot looking doubtful, Leicester might raid the West Midlands club for their prize midfield man.

McGinn has scored two goals and registered seven assists for the Villans this season, thriving in a central midfield role.

Rodgers was desperate to land the 24-year-old last summer and he is now expected to be involved in another transfer battle to land McGinn next summer.

The Northern Irishman is clearly an avid fan of McGinn and a move to the Premier League could convince the left-footed ace.
