Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is reportedly desperate for his club to sign Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips during next summer’s transfer window.

The 25-year-old has made 215 appearances for the Whites since his debut in 2014. He excelled for Marcelo Bielsa’s side during their first campaign back in the Premier League.

Phillips has also become a key member of England manager Gareth Southgate’s first XI. He has played in every match at this summer’s European Championship.

The midfielder still has three years left to run on his contract at Elland Road. But according to Fichajes, Man City could attempt to sign him during next summer’s transfer window.

The report claims that Citizens manager Guardiola has asked the club to sign the Englishman ahead of the 2022-23 campaign to provide competition for Rodri in the middle of the park.

Will Kalvin Phillips arrive at Manchester City?

Man City have also recently been linking themselves with West Ham United’s Declan Rice and Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham. Fernandinho is expecting to leave the Etihad Stadium on a free transfer next June.

Phillips would be bringing in to City to compete with Spain star Rodri, 25, in City’s talented midfield. 

The report adds that Phillips would arrive with ‘the aim of adding a valuable piece to his rotation in the shuttlecock area and that Rodri has someone against who will compete for the position.

It is also not believing that a nine-figure fee would act as a deterrent to City given that time is on Rice’s side. The Englishman’s current contract runs out in 2024. There is no immediate pressure for West Ham United to offload him.
Manchester United have long been linking with Rice’s move. With the contracts of midfielders Paul Pogba, Fred and Nemanja Matic ending in 2022, 2023 and 2023 respectively.
