Celtic will have to pay £4 million as transfer fee if they are to sign John McGinn from Hibernian in the summer transfer window, according to The Daily Mail.

It has been reported that Celtic have had two bids of £1.5m and £1.75m for McGinn turned down by Scottish Premiership rivals Hibernian already this summer.


The report has also claimed that a number of clubs in the Premier League and in the Championship in England are interested in the 23-year-old midfielder.

Celtic to miss out?

It is hard to see Hibernian sell McGinn on the cheap, especially as he is one of the best midfielders in the Scottish Premiership.

Given that the Scotland international is only 23 years of age and his undeniable potential, the former St. Mirren star is certainly more than what Celtic are reportedly willing to pay.

With clubs in the Premier League and the Championship reportedly interested in McGinn, Celtic are now facing a stiff competition for the signature of the 23-year-old midfielder this summer, and that is a problem for manager Brendan Rodgers.
