Tim Sherwood believes Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips would improve Tottenham, Manchester United and Arsenal.
Phillips has emerged as one of Leeds’ most important players after the club secured promotion back to the top flight in 2020.
However, the 26-year-old has been absent for a large chunk of the current campaign, missing 15 games since picking up a hamstring injury in December (Transfermarkt).
But despite Phillips’ fitness worries this term, 90min have reported the likes of Liverpool, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are tracking him ahead of a potential transfer this summer.
Despite the calibre of club said to be keeping an eye on the midfielder at such a high level, Sherwood does not think he should secure such a big move.
The pundit suggested he would improve sides like Tottenham, Man United and Arsenal, who are all currently vying to secure a place in the Premier League top four.
“If he goes to Manchester City or Liverpool, he might not play for them. He improves Manchester United, Spurs and Arsenal.”

Phillips has been good for Leeds since their promotion, injuries aside, and he would be a useful asset for whoever chooses to pursue him.
But he may not be of that elite quality to play at the highest level, and unfortunately, Spurs are not in the upper echelons at the moment. He definitely could do a job for the club, but the midfield is a little congested currently so movement would need to happen first.
