I've watched a lot of McGinn over the past few years, he's a very decent player but for the fees I've seen mentioned (£15-20m) I think it would be a crazy amount to pay for him.

 

I think he could hold his own at Leicester but I don't really see him improving your team all that much, I think technically and also his distribution in particular could be exposed a bit playing against a far greater standard of opposition in the EPL.

 

Celtic dithered on signing him in the summer, low balling their offer hoping his emotional attachment to the club would get him eventually make him sit tight and accept our offer when it came and it bit us on the arse when he got fed up and went to Villa.  That said, I wasn't at the time and am still not overly fussed on missing out on him as when everyone is fit I don't think he would play in our starting 11, McGregor (hands off btw!) for example is far better and greater technically.

 

Not that I want to lose him as he's a terrific player however if you have £20m to spend and you elect to spend that on McGinn as opposed to McGregor who I reckon we'd seriously consider selling at that sort of offer then I'd see that as madness.  McGregor has also performed at a far higher level, played superbly and scored goals in Europe against top sides like Bayern Munich, Leipzig, Monchengladbach, Zenit, etc.

 

 

OK, I,m sold, we will do a straight swap for one of our best midfielders, masses of experience in the premiere league, he will walk into your team.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

His name? Matty James, he will walk into the team as he isnt fit to run

I’m hesitant of buying any Scottish players at this moment!

 

all jokes aside he’s certainly not the Ndidi replacement/competition needed.

Tbh I can understand this to an extent, the only Scottish players I'd say that are worth the gamble and would do well in the EPL and improve a top half club are Tierney, McGregor and Forrest.  Non-Celtic you can add in Fraser who is already proven at EPL level and has great numbers this season.
