Leeds: Whites keen on signing Kalvin Phillips alternative - Leeds United Transfer Rumours

Leeds United are on the lookout to sign a strong alternative to Kalvin Phillips this summer, seeing midfield as a key area in which to strengthen.

The next transfer window has the potential to be an exciting one at Elland Road as Marcelo Bielsa aims to make his squad even more formidable. A mid-table finish in the Premier League appears to be on the cards this season, but there is no reason why Leeds can’t aim for higher in 2021/22, assuming the right players are brought in.

Leeds keen on signing Phillips alternative

According to Football Insider, the Whites believe that signing a backup to the ‘outstanding’ Phillips is of paramount importance in order to allow the England midfielder a breather from time to time.

No names are specified in terms of potential players to come in, but Bielsa reportedly views it as a ‘key position for squad improvement’.

Transfer Tavern take

The importance of having top-quality depth in the Premier League is huge, with small squads often found wanting as the season progresses. Given the relentless nature of Phillips’ role, with endless running required, it makes perfect sense to sign someone who is capable of dovetailing with the 25-year-old, who has started every league match for which he has been available this term.

That way, Leeds are more likely to see the best of the Englishman throughout a whole campaign, alleviating the risk of burnout and keeping competition for places healthy.
