Fabrice Muamba has listed Tottenham as one of three Premier League clubs he thinks Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips could join.
The 25-year-old has established himself as a linchpin in the heart of Marcelo Bielsa’s midfield and has been one of Leeds’ top performers since their promotion back to the top flight.
Phillips’ performances for the Yorkshire club have also translated onto the international stage with England, playing a starring role in the Euro 2020 run to the final.
Although he is contracted with Leeds until the summer of 2024, there continue to be rumours around his future at Elland Road, with some linking him with a step up to a bigger club.
Former Premier League midfielder Muamba believes the likes of Spurs and rivals Arsenal could suit the midfielder going forward, as well as both Manchester clubs.
Speaking on his Twitch channel, he said: “Listen, Phillips will get a lot of offers come the transfer window, maybe not in January, but in summer a lot of teams will be after him because he’s a good footballer and he can pass the ball very well.
“I see him going somewhere like Manchester United or City, I don’t think he’ll go to Chelsea, but maybe he could go to Arsenal or maybe Tottenham, it depends which manager wants to take him, he’s a good box to box player, but he doesn’t score enough in his position.”
Spurs Web Opinion
Phillips has been a stand-out performer for Leeds in the past 18 months, so it wouldn’t surprise anyone if they were to receive plenty of offers for him in the coming transfer windows.
He’d fit pretty well at Spurs and is also dynamic in that he can slot into defence, but it will probably be a tough move to complete.
