Spurs target “wants to go to the Euros” which could influence January transfer

By Mehdi Gokal -

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips is likely to leave the club in January.

Phillips joined Manchester City from Leeds United last summer for £42m on a 6 year deal but the move has not worked out for him so far.

He failed to establish himself as a first-team regular last year and has fallen down the pecking order further with the arrival of Kovacic and Matheus Nunes. Rodrigo and even young Rico Lewis are preferred ahead of him.

Phillips has been linked with a move away and Tottenham are one of the clubs linked with him.

Romano has now shared the latest regarding the 27-year-old. Speaking about the midfielder’s future on his YouTube channel, Romano said:

“As we know, the situation is not quiet around Kalvin Phillips.

“He’s super professional, he’s a super nice guy, always very confident, always very quiet so he’s never creating any problems but the problem there is a technical problem.

“Kalvin Phillips needs to play, he’s saying that in public and in private even more.

“He needs to play football, he can’t always be on the bench, he wants to go to the Euros, he wants to be an important player for the English national team and for his club.

“At Manchester City, he’s almost never playing. In the summer he had many possibilities he decided to reject because he wanted to continue at City and fight for his place but now it’s almost November and he’s still never playing.

“So, the feeling of sources on both player and club is that in January it’s very likely that Kalvin Phillips will leave Manchester City to try a different experience.”

Yves Bissouma and Pape Matar Sarr will be away with their international teams for AFCON for several weeks between January and February, leaving Tottenham with plans to address their absence. They will very likely be in the market for a midfielder in the January transfer window.
