Tottenham ready to challenge Man Utd for Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn

Tottenham are targeting Aston Villa midfielder John McGinn.

The Telegraph says Spurs will battle Manchester United to sign Aston Villa star man McGinn this summer as Antonio Conte eyes a squad overhaul.

Conte is looking to get his squad into shape ahead of a potential return to the Champions League next season.

But Spurs may well have the lure of Champions League football over United, whose Europa League spot for next season is far from guaranteed.

Should United fail to beat Crystal Palace and West Ham see off Brighton, the Hammers will nick sixth place.

That would see the Red Devils play in the Europa Conference League next term.

Conte and sporting director Fabio Paratici could also look to turn Dejan Kulusevski, Rodrigo Bentancur and Cristian Romero all into permanent deals.
