Liverpool sent encouraging message over transfer target Kalvin Phillips

Posted by

Liverpool have been sent an encouraging message over Leeds United star Kalvin Phillips.

Phillips was one of the stars of Euro 2020, thoroughly convincing in England’s midfield as the Three Lions reached the finals before eventually missing out to Italy on penalties.

That fine international form followed another impressive season for Leeds United, Phillips helping the Whites establish themselves in their first season back in the Premier League.

This summer, Phillips is being linked with a move away from Elland Road with Liverpool credited with an interest by The Mirror.

Leeds are likely to do all they can to keep hold of Phillips ahead of the new season, and it is going to take a very high transfer fee to lure the midfielder away.

But that might not stop Liverpool, who are keen to strengthen following an under-par season of last, finishing third thanks to a late run of form.

Manchester United have been told to sign Kalvin Phillips

And former Aston Villa star Gabriel Agbonlahor has backed the Reds to make a move.

“It’s not just Liverpool, I think he’ll be on everybody’s radar,” he told Football Insider.

“He’s an outstanding player and was one of England’s stand-out performers at the Euros. Every team in the Premier League and teams in Europe will be looking at him and will definitely try to sign him.

“It’s going to be a bit of a headache for Leeds to try and keep hold of him because he’s been outstanding.

“I’m sure Liverpool are definitely looking at him. But the price tag will be high to get him out of there.”

  1. Jamie you need to speak to Kalvin, maybe even research his hometown one club ambitions and ask if he wants to vacate his recently acquired £2.8 million mansion in Linton West Yorkshire. You are right however to wonder if the fee is beyond economical resources at every club.

    1. sorry you wont be able to afford him even if he did decide to leave his beloved Leeds dream on!!

  2. Liverpool after Philips funny
    1. Why would you want to leave a next generation top 6 club for a next generation midd table (at best) club
    2. Liverpool do not have the finances
    3. Phillips is a Leeds boy

  3. How exactly is agbonlahor (who clearly nows nowt about owt) saying that big clubs will be interested in Phillips encouraging words for Liverpool?

    More click bate bull sh1t, maybes attempt some real journalism?

  4. Oh Gobby. I wondered how long it would be before you started gobbing off total rubbish just to get some attention. You really need to seek a new career path. I understand there are vacancies in your local Lidl if you are quick

  5. A Leeds boy thru and thru..
    But realise every player has a price Kevin is a Leeds boy but we all know players will eventually wish to ‘step up’
    We know who they are!
    I think give him another year and sell £15million minimum. With the youth policy in place I reckon we will find another gem, importantly create financial stability for the future.

  6. 15 million ? 15 million will not go anywhere near establishing financial stability and your valuation is way off. Other clubs would be over the moon to get him for 80 / 100 million.
    The management and financial backers know that one of the biggest assets of our club is the unique and passionate local support and selling a local hero without needing to risks losing the good faith of the supporters and damaging the relationship built up between club and supporters.
