Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips has drawn strong links to Liverpool.
Jurgen Klopp is clearly scouting for fresh midfield talent, one who can replace Gini Wijnaldum.
So far, The Reds have fallen short in their search, struggling to bring in their top targets. Phillips is a player whose stock has risen considerably after the 2020 European Championships. He mastered England’s midfield alongside Declan Rice, playing a crucial part in their run to the final.
“He fits Liverpool perfectly”, Former Arsenal footballer Perry Groves told talkSPORT, as quoted by Inside Futbol.
“He fits Liverpool perfectly, with the energy they play with, the closing down, his athleticism, his passing range.
“[He would cost] £100m.”
Does Liverpool have that sort of cash to burn? I highly doubt it. Liverpool’s ownership is all about finding bargain deals for players. Phillips is definitely one of the best in his position in the country but his price tag does not justify the move.
Klopp has brought in players from other parts of the continent and just as easily made them key members of his squad. Perhaps, they should look at cheaper targets. Borussia Monchengladbach’s Florian Neuhaus is a realistic target with his release clause.
