Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp could make a shock swoop to sign Aston Villa’s John McGinn this summer.
The Reds are considering a midfield rebuilding project following Gini Wijnaldum’s exit and the Scottish international is rumoured to be high on Klopp’s radar.
McGinn has established himself as a firm fans favourite at Villa Park but the prospect of Champions League football could be a turning point for him.
According to reports from the Birmingham Mail, Villa head coach Dean Smith is resigned to losing at least one key player in the coming months.
And selling McGinn is viewed as a better option than offloading talisman Jack Grealish in a club record sale.
