John McGinn a Rangers transfer target as Steven Gerrard looks to beat off English clubs to sign Hibs midfielder

McGinn has been linked with a host of sides south of the border and Hibs are looking to hold out for up to £5m for the playmaker.

Steven Gerrard is weighing up an attempt to hijack John McGinn’s summer move across the border.

Record Sport understands Gerrard has been alerted to McGinn’s availability by director of football Mark Allen and head of scouting Andy Scoulding - both of whom have been tracking the 23-year-old’s situation for months.

In fact, the player and his representatives were made aware of Rangers’ interest before Gerrard was officially appointed as the new man in charge last Friday.

And the Ibrox boss in waiting dispatched a scout to Tynecastle on Wednesday night to run the rule over McGinn as the Hibs star suffered a derby defeat at the hands of city rivals Hearts.

Now Gerrard - who has already drawn up a long list of summer targets - must weigh up whether or not to add McGinn’s name to his list and enter the bidding for one of Scotland’s most sought-after and valuable young talents.

But, if Gerrard does decide to make a move, he’ll face stiff financial opposition as it's believed a number of big- spending English clubs - including at least one from the Premier League - are preparing to come to the table with the bidding likely to start at no less than £3million.

Hibs boss Neil Lennon believes the club should be holding out for as much as £5million even though McGinn only has one year left to run on his Easter Road contract. And the player’s price could spiral if a number of potential bidders follow up their interest with firm cash offers.

Although most of McGinn’s potential suitors are believed to be championship clubs some top flight bosses, including West Ham’s Davie Moyes, have been monitoring McGinn’s progression since the start of the season.

But with doubts still surrounding Moyes’ future in London’s East End - despite him leading the Hammers to safety by the skin of their teeth - it remains to be seen if he will be in any position to lead the bidding.

Now Gerrard is mulling over the chance to get in early as he plots for his first season in senior management.

It’s understood the 37-year-old has drawn up a list of his own targets which includes a number of former team-mates and opponents from his time at Liverpool, with veteran defender Martin Skrtel among his preferred options.

It depends really, parallels with the lego eater who was meant to be a big Rangers fan but certainly isn't anymore. As much as I think he's a good player with potential to be a lot better it's a risk though that he can't shift his support for them

Don’t think he’d sign for us and even if he does huge risk of him turning out to be as unprofessional as MOH but @Inigo did point out the circumstances would be different if McGinn signed for us - hed have no shortage of choices and if he opted for us would probably be coming for footballing reasons. 

If he’s open to it it’s worth exploring how much they’d sell for. That type of player is exactly what we’re lacking in midfield.

McGinn holds all the aces , if he wants to come to Rangers no one can stop him. All he does is refuse a new contract and they'll beg him to leave . He tells them I'm only going to Rangers and 2.5M should do it. If he goes to tims he won't play every week and is no better than they've already got. Gerrard will play him every week and will get him the exposure he needs to play regularly for Scotland.

Season ticket moonbeam  NOn story, he’s a superb player and will have his choice of clubs and we know it. Makes us look good by pretending we  have an interest. We can’t compete with any sellik interest, end off

Once again if John Mcginn was a deciding factor in someone having a season ticket then they shouldn't have one in the first place 

John mcginn or any other player is not the deciding factor, it’s the illusion of having big  money to spend to create a team that will compete. It isn’t going to happen so moonbeams have to be dropped to keep sales up
