Celtic Eyeing This Dazzling Midfielder: The Right Man For Rodgers This Summer?

Celtic have once again been crowned the Scottish Premiership champions last term, which gets their tally to a record 48th time in the history of the tournament. The spirits are high in the Hoops’ camp and they are currently looking to make the next season memorable as well by repeating their incredible feat and are looking for players who will help them do that in the summer transfer window.

The current man in charge at the Celtic Park, Brendan Rodgers has quite a few talented youngsters in his sight to be brought into the side, and on the top of his list is the name of the Hibernian midfielder John McGinn. Rodgers has been looking to bring in the hard working youngster from his rival Scottish club for quite some time now.

However, his interest in the 22-year-old is rivalled by English Championship side Ipswich Town, who have reportedly made a bid of £1.2 million initially to bag the midfielder for the next season. The bid has been rejected by the current club in possession of the Scottish midfielder, as they are in no mood to let go of their prized possession in the summer to any other club.

This did not bog down the interest of the Championship club as their present man in charge, Mick McCarthy is determined to get the youngster in his team and is looking to put a new bid on the table. A number of other clubs from the English Championship also look quite interested in the 22-year-old.

Rodgers has been very much frank about his admiration for the youngster and wants him as a part of his squad for the next season. Hibernian are well aware of the Hoops’ interest in their midfielder as well and might be letting him go to some other club in the next season but only at an increased bid, outnumbering the one made initially by Ipswich Town.

McGinn was able to raise a number of eyebrows with his superb skills in the midfield for the Hibs and is known for his mesmerising dribbling that can cause any defence to look shaky on his day. It might be a good opportunity for the youngster to showcase his skills at the highest level in case he agrees to make a move to Celtic in the summer, as it will provide him with the opportunity to play in the Champions League in the next season.
