Leeds star could leave club next summer with Liverpool and Spurs interested

Kalvin Phillips in action for England

Leeds are thriving in their return to the Premier League this summer.

Marcelo Bielsa has got the team playing some great football and they've already had some very impressive results.

The Yorkshire outfit have picked up seven points from their opening four games, with wins over Fulham and Sheffield United as well as a draw against Man City.

Their only loss came against reigning Premier League champions Liverpool; and even then they were unlucky not to get something from the game.

Leeds could jump up to third if they defeat Wolves on Monday night.

A big reason for their success has been the form of Kalvin Phillips.

The midfielder has been sensational for Leeds and he has been rewarded by featuring four times for England in 2020.

Given his form, it would not be surprising if a club playing European football made a move for him.

And, according to the Mirror, that may just be the case.

They report that Phillips is drawing interest from both Liverpool and Tottenham.

Jurgen Klopp and Joe Mourinho are both said to be impressed by his form at the start of the campaign and are interested in signing him next summer.

Phillips signed a contract at Leeds last year worth £30,000-per-week, but both Liverpool and Spurs will be able to more than double that figure.

He will not come cheap, though. Leeds do not want to get rid of their prized asset and it is believed they rate him at £50m.

As aforementioned, it's not surprising at all that Phillips is drawing interest. He has been brilliant for Leeds and is one of the reasons why they've made such a good start to the season.

In my opinion, he's more than good enough to play for any side in the country.

However, despite the reports, I don't see Liverpool making an offer for him at this time.

The Reds are stacked in the centre of midfield and I can't see them wanting to strengthen unless they move one or two players in that position on.


And even if they want to make a move, I can't see them bidding £50m when they were seemingly reluctant to pay half that for Thiago this summer.

I can see a move to Spurs being much more likely. Tottenham signed Pierre-Emile Højbjerg in the summer but I still think there's a place up for grab alongside him.

To be honest, if he does join Tottenham, he would become the club's best centre midfielder.

But all of this is just speculation at this stage. There's still a long way to go until next summer.

And who knows, Leeds could qualify for Europe this season and Phillips may not want to leave anyway.
