The long saga of Hibernian midfielder John McGinn’s future looks to be finally on it’s way to a conclusion of sorts.
The Scottish Sun are reporting that Celtic have the Scottish international on a shortlist of players they want to sign, and they would include Scott Allan as part of the deal.
Sunderland have also been linked with the 23-year-old, as reported by the Scottish Sun.
Steven Gerrard’s interest in the Easter Road man was first reported by the Daily Record a few weeks ago, with the story claiming that Hibernian wanted £5million for McGinn.
Hibernian are never going to get that amount of money for a player whose contract runs out at the end of next season.
But Gerrard and Gers director of football should sanction a huge bid for McGinn, one which Hibernian would find very difficult to turn down.
An offer of around £4million would show that the Gers really mean business under the Gerrard revolution, as it would show that they are willing to spend big money in order to bring the league title back to Ibrox.
It was a coup for the Light Blues to get Gerrard to come to Ibrox in the first place, and he will be expecting big things in the transfer market.
If McGinn is a player he really wants, Allen must make the Edinburgh club an offer they can’t refuse, it would shock the rest of Scottish football and give notice to the fact that the Gers are back in business.
