Scottish champions Celtic are reportedly keen on Hibernian midfielder John McGinn in the summer transfer window.

Celtic have been chasing the midfielder for a while and they have made a formal approach for him this month.

The Bhoys had an initial offer of £1.5 million for McGinn turned down by Hibernian, with reports suggesting they value the midfielder at £3 million.

In an inflated market where mediocre players are sold at ridiculous prices, £3 million for a player of McGinn’s quality is nothing but a bargain. And Leeds must do everything to prise the Scotland international midfielder away from Hibs in the summer.

In fact, in May, The Scottish Sun claimed that Leeds were interested in the Hibs midfielder, and probably the time is right now to rekindle the interest and make a formal approach.

Leeds have recently signed midfielder Lewis Baker on a season-long loan deal from Chelsea, but surely there is room for a top quality player like McGinn.

The Yorkshire outfit will be aiming for promotion from the Championship next season, and McGinn can provide quality and depth to the squad.

Marcelo Bielsa should not hesitate to join the race for McGinn and it would be a masterstroke move if they manage to snatch the deal right under the nose of Celtic.
