‘Very seduced by Anfield’ – LFC prepare bid to sign £60m-rated ace that wants ‘Champs League and to fight for titles’

Liverpool have been linked with Leeds United’s Raphinha quite heavily recently but it’s now Kalvin Phillips’ turn to be linked with a move to Anfield.

The midfielder’s 21/22 season hasn’t gone to plan exactly and was interrupted by a minor hamstring injury last month which saw him miss 9 games during a crucial spell for Leeds and he’s still on the sidelines.

But everyone is well aware of his quality and he is reportedly a target for Liverpool, with the Reds preparing a bid for the £60million-rated ace.

Kalvin Phillips

According to Catalan news outlet El Nacional, Liverpool are readying a bid for the Premier League star worth €40million (£33m).

It’s stated that the offer will be turned down as Leeds do not want to sell to other sides in England’s top-flight although that seems like a rather privileged approach given that Leeds have only just taken hold of their relegation fight.

The Whites beat West Ham 3-2 on Sunday to make it back to back Premier League wins.

They’re now 9 points clear of the drop spot but if their only issue is that they don’t want to sell to English clubs, then they will have a tough time holding onto Phillips especially as Liverpool and Leeds are hardly competing for the same objectives.

Kalvin Phillips

The report adds: “Philipps is very seduced by the idea of ​​playing at Anfield, where he could play in the Champions League and fight for titles.

“He also has Real Madrid in his plans, who has long been paying close attention to one of Carlo Ancelotti’s great obsessions.”

With Jordan Henderson showing signs of fatigue and age this season, Liverpool need to be doing their homework to find a long-term successor and Kalvin Phillips may well be the right player.

At times, when they’ve had the right players fit and firing, Leeds have tried to play counter-pressing football so we’ve seen Phillips attempt a similar role to Henderson albeit much deeper on the pitch.
