Man Utd and Liverpool in John McGinn transfer battle with Aston Villa star impressing for Scotland at Euro 2020
ASTON VILLA star John McGinn is reportedly being chased by Manchester United and Liverpool after impressing at Euro 2020.
The Scottish midfielder, who has started in the opening two games for Steve Clarke's side, is tied down at Villa Park until 2025.3Manchester United and Liverpool are reportedly keen on Aston Villa midfielder John McGinnCredit: Getty
But according to the Sunday Post via HITC, the 26-year-old could be on the move later this summer after three years spent with the Midlands side.
As well as his impressive performances for Villa in the last two Premier League seasons, his starring displays for Scotland have caught the eye of Liverpool and United.
McGinn was superb during the 0-0 draw against England on Friday, leading the news outlet to suggest the Premier League giants could step up their interest in him.
It has been stated that Villa value the player at £50million, though the report claims that a fee of £20m could be enough to secure his services.
Liverpool are in the market for a new midfielder after Dutch ace Georginio Wijnaldum joined Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer.
Though Borussia Monchengladbach maestro Florian Neuhaus appears to be Jurgen Klopp's priority.
Meanwhile United could turn to the former Hibernian ace should France international Paul Pogba depart the Theatre of Dreams.
The 2018 World Cup has just a year left on his contract at Old Trafford, though the Red Devils are prepared to hand him a whopping £400,000-a-week deal.

United were first linked with McGinn in 2019, but baulked at the Villans £50m valuation of the player.
McGinn was ever-present for Villa during the 2020-21 campaign as he featured in 37 Premier League games.
He chipped in with three goals and six assists as he helped Dean Smith's men to an 11th-placed finish in the top-flight.England vs Czech Republic - Watch LIVE for FREE, channel info and kick-off time
