Liverpool could make a move for Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
Anfield Watch Verdict
Phillips is a solid player. There is a reason why he averaged a WhoScored player rating of 7.01 across the 2020-21 Premier League campaign (29 appearances).
Also, comments from England boss Gareth Southgate certainly back up the aforementioned argument.
“He’s been excellent,” the Three Lions boss said back in September 2021, as quoted by TeamTalk.
“The way he has taken to international football, it hasn’t surprised us because what we’d seen with Leeds, even (when he played) in the Championship, we felt (he) could convert into our team. We felt he could play an important role with us.
“To play in the enormity of the matches he did in the summer and play as well as he did is massive credit to him.
“He’s a very, very good player and he’s been a really important part of this – we’re 16 games unbeaten (in regulation time) now and he’s been a huge part of that.”
Therefore, we believe that Phillips could be a decent signing for Liverpool. The Reds do possess plenty of options in midfield (Jordan Henderson, Thiago Alcantara, Fabinho, Naby Keita, Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott).
But, you can never have too many good players in your squad.
However, only time will tell if Liverpool are genuinely interested in acquiring Phillips' services. The summer transfer window is always full of surprises.
