As reported by The Scottish Sun, Leeds United are one of the teams interested in signing Hibernian midfielder John McGinn this summer.
The paper say that while Leeds are looking to make a £2.5m move for the player, Hibs are eager to hold out for £5m, with other teams interested in his services.
The Scotland international has emerged as one of the most talented midfielders in the Scottish Premiership, helping Hibs qualify for UEFA Europa League action in their first season back in the top-flight after promotion.
Leeds are on the hunt for signings that can help them push towards the play-off positions next season and McGinn has the quality to make an impact in the Championship.
Fans certainly seem eager, feeling he is the standard of player that they should be linked with this summer, as opposed to uninspiring targets this time last year.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on a potential deal…
Seen him play for hibs outstanding player.

Perfect summer for me is Gunn (L) Bartley, A. Hernandez, J. McGinn and J. Windass
Let’s see shall we! #LUFC

He would walk into our first team, mate. Leeds very much do need midfielders.

So nice to see Leeds getting linked with the likes of A. Hernandez, Bartley, McGinn and Wilson. Whether we get any of them or not, you have to admit it’s a higher standard of player than we were looking at last summer

Leeds United always seem to have their best moments/seasons with Scots in their team.
The clubs foundations are full of Bravehearts. Get Oli McBurnie & John McGinn in @LUFC @andrearadri #LUFC #MOT pic.twitter.com/CySDBsu1pb

Seems we're targeting a centre mid as well with VOO and McGinn linked. Another pair of quality players but who will make way? Only really need 4, just O'Kane out and Klich coming back, like them all personally. #lufc

Cracking wee player. Fast, nippy, left footed. One of the best midfielders in the league up here.
