The Tottenham has shown interest in signing Manchester City’s Kalvin Phillips. Following three consecutive defeats in the Premier League, the team led by Ange Postecoglou aims to bolster their midfield with a potential arrival of the English player, who lacks playing time in Pep Guardiola’s squad.
This information was disclosed by the “Football Insider” website. The arrival of the 28-year-old player would come at an opportune moment. Without Rodrigo Bentancur, expected to be out until February next year, Spurs see Kalvin Phillips as a potential solution to the midfielder’s absence.
Moreover, Pape Matar Sarr and Yves Bissouma are expected to participate in the African Cup of Nations in January, respectively representing Senegal and Mali. According to the same source, the midfielder has drawn interest from other English league clubs as well as Juventus in Italy.
Kalvin Phillips draws interest from multiple clubs
Due to Sandro Tonali’s suspension over betting-related issues, Newcastle emerges as one of the clubs eyeing the English player. West Ham also shows interest, positioning themselves as competitors in the market. Anticipations suggest there will be a transfer market battle for Kalvin Phillips.
Underutilized by Guardiola, Kalvin Phillips has only featured in eight matches for the English club this season. His contract with Manchester City runs until June 2028. The City Group club recently indicated that they won’t impede negotiations for the player in the upcoming transfer window.
Kalvin Phillips is an English midfielder renowned for his dedication to Leeds United, where he became a crucial figure after joining the club. Consequently, he gained international recognition for his consistent performances and commitment to the game.
His versatile ability, strong physical presence, and capability to deliver precise passes have made him stand out both at Leeds and in the English national team, where he earned call-ups to represent his country in competitions like Euro 2020, showcasing his exceptional midfield prowess.
