DERBY COUNTY’S new boss Frank Lampard is eyeing a £3million bid for Hibs’ Celtic-linked midfielder John McGinn.
According to reports south of the border, the Rams are keen on the all-action Scotland midfielder.
Former Chelsea star Lampard, who has just taken over the Championship side, has targeted McGinn as a key man in his side’s promotion push next season.
Celtic gaffer Brendan Rodgers has been monitoring the situation and will be in the market for a replacement when Stuart Armstrong’s £7million move to Southampton is rubberstamped this week.
Birmingham City and Sunderland are also tracking McGinn, who has only 12 months left on his Easter Road contract.
