A few days ago, Championship club Nottingham Forest put in an offer of £750,000 in an attempt to bring in Hibernian’s John McGinn to the City Ground.
The bid was seen as laughable by the Scottish club as they value the central midfielder at around £5 million.
Should Mark Warburton go back in for the player and meet the valuation of the player then it will beat the club’s record transfer fee paid for a player which currently stands at £4.5 million paid to Celtic for Pierre van Hooijdonk in 1997.
The Scotland international scored four goals and contributed nine assists in 29 league games last season in the Scottish Championship.
Here at FLW, we think the famous club should go back in with a revised offer and try to get a deal completed before the transfer window closes.
Forest currently sit in sixth place on the Championship table after three wins and two losses from their opening five games.
Mark Warburton’s side isn’t exactly struggling for numbers in the centre of the park with three natural central midfielders at the club, but bolstering their squad whilst they can is never a bad idea.
During his time at Hibernian, the 22-year-old has become an almost irreplaceable asset at the club which makes their valuation of the player understandable.
With the deadline coming at midnight on Thursday, Warburton will need to act quickly and come back in with a good enough offer if he wants to get his man.
McGinn currently has two years left on his contract at the Scottish club.
