Chris Sutton has claimed he would target Declan Rice over Kalvin Phillips this summer.
Rice and Phillips have been subject to a vast amount of interest this summer, as the two England international’s have been performing exceptionally for both club and country.
Sutton has now claimed if he was a managed, he would be targeting Rice over Phillips this summer.
“I would take Rice. I think Rice is ahead of Phillips, at this moment in time. I think most people across the country would say that as well,” said Sutton, speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live Sport.
It may be a popular opinion amongst football fans, but with Manchester City opting to pursue a move for Phillips ahead of Rice, it appears Pep Guardiola either doesn’t agree with Sutton, or he’s exploring a cheaper option.
