Kalvin Phillips is the subject of interest from the Merseyside giants over a potential move in the summer transfer window. The Reds’ coach, Jurgen Klopp is a huge admirer of the Leeds United midfielder’s talents and is keen on sanctioning a transfer.
Kalvin is widely regarded as one of the best midfielders on show in the PL this campaign, having taken no time to get settled in the competition following Leeds United’s promotion from the Championship. Such has been his impact that Phillips has managed to establish a foothold in the English national side as well over the course of the campaign.
As for his time at club level, England international has turned out 206 times for the Whites, even chipping in with 12 goals and as many assists. And, his exploits have duly been noted by one of the biggest clubs in England, with PL champions Liverpool showing an interest in the 25-year-old midfielder.
The Reds are set to enter a period of transition following their struggles in defending their PL crown this campaign. Midfield is one department that is certain to be reinforced this summer, with Georginio Wijnaldum reportedly intent on joining Barcelona.
As a result, the Reds are being forced to dip their toes in the transfer market for a midfielder, with several options, including Fabian Ruiz, identified as possible options to replace Wijnaldum. And, Phillips could be one such option as well, even though he largely operates at the base of the midfield instead of reprising a box-to-box role.
