Tottenham Hotspur: Leeds United star Kalvin Phillips on Spurs summer watchlist as Liverpool also keep tabs

Tottenham Hotspur: Leeds United star Kalvin Phillips on Spurs summer watchlist as Liverpool also keep tabs - Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

According to the Daily Mirror, both Tottenham and Liverpool are eyeing summer moves for Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips – with the report even suggesting that Daniel Levy will double the player’s salary. 

Phillips, who is said to be attracting a huge fan in Spurs boss Jose Mourinho, has also been earning praise from pundits for his performances at Elland Road recently.

Should Spurs sign Kalvin Phillips for £50m this summer?

Yes, 100%, next level

Phillips on the rise

The midfield ace was called up by England boss Gareth Southgate over the season’s first international break for his first caps after impressing under Marcelo Bielsa in the Premier League.

Phillips was a huge part of Leeds’ promotion to the top flight last campaign, with left-back Barry Douglas describing him as the best player he’s ever shared a pitch with. 

Lauded as one of the Championship’s ‘outstanding’ players last season, fellow teammate Ben White claimed he had ‘Ozil in his back pocket‘ during the Whites’ unfortunate FA Cup defeat to Arsenal.

The praise seems to be never-ending, with Football Insider pundit Noel Whelan waxing lyrical over the ‘brilliant‘ 24-year-old after he was called up to the national team.

Transfer Tavern take

Bearing all this in mind, it’s little wonder why Levy allegedly wants to double his current £30,000-per-week wage, but he’ll do well to whittle down Leeds’ stunning asking price.

The Yorkshire giants apparently value Phillips at around £50 million, and if any Spurs supporter knows their chairman, it is highly unlikely that he will pay that amount.

Given the presence of Tanguy Ndombele, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Giovani Lo Celso and Moussa Sissoko in central midfield, Spurs seem stacked in that position.

Taking this into account, Tottenham investing £50m in Phillips seems unlikely at best.
