John McGinn has the potential to be a big midfield hit at Leeds United

As reported by The Scottish Sun, Leeds United are in the hunt for Hibernian midfielder John McGinn this summer, rivalling Celtic and Rangers for his signature.

What’s the story?

Leeds need a positive summer transfer window if they are to match fans’ ambitions of pushing towards the top end of the Championship table next season.

One name on their radar is John McGinn.

That’s according to The Scottish Sun, who say Leeds are considering making a £2.5m bid for the player, who has a year left on his contract at Easter Road.

The paper reckon that the club will try to hold out for £5m however, with Celtic and Rangers also interested in signing him this summer.

What can he offer?

McGinn has emerged as one of the more impressive midfielders in the Scottish Premiership and has measured up well in contests against both Glasgow giants this season.

An all-rounder whose hard work and determination complements ambitious forward play and strong dribbling ability, he’s the kind of passionate performer that Leeds United fans would appreciate.

Already playing at international level with Scotland, the 23-year-old is destined for bigger things after successful spells at St Mirren and Hibs.

He scored six goals and created eight assists this term, helping Hibs to a top four finish in the top-flight and UEFA Europa League qualification after promotion.

He’s a player Leeds should definitely pursue this summer if the price is right.
