Tottenham want to make an offer for in-demand £25m Leeds star – report – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly showing interest in Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
According to reports from TuttoJuve, Serie A giants Juventus have set their sights on Phillips who impressed during England’s 1-0 victory against Croatia.
The report claims that Leeds have set a price for their talisman midfielder.
Leeds are demanding £25m (a figure close to 30 million euros) for the talented midfielder, and it is very well within the budget of Spurs and Juventus.
The report adds that the likes of Manchester City and Real Madrid are also keen to get Phillips on board.
Phillips has developed into one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League, and it comes as no surprise that big clubs are taking keen interest in him.
He has been simply outstanding for the Whites in the past few seasons and impressed heavily in the Premier League last season.
Phillips has already made a strong impact in Euro 2020, and his performance against Croatia has earned him rave reviews from fans and pundits.
The 25-year-old academy product is enjoying his best football at the moment, and Leeds have no intention to sell him.
Moreover, the price quoted for him is ludicrous. Leeds are expected to demand at least twice the amount in case he decides to move on.
If clubs like Real Madrid or Manchester City come calling, Phillips will be tempted to move on, but joining Tottenham doesn’t make sense.
Spurs will be looking to bolster their midfield this summer, and Phillips would be a fantastic addition. However, the chances of getting him are very slim.
