Tottenham Hotspur are one of many clubs interested in signing Kalvin Phillips, according to TEAMtalk.

Spurs, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Arsenal are all reportedly ‘keeping tabs’ on the midfielder’s situation with Leeds United.

Leeds and Phillips are both allegedly ‘aware’ of this interest and the Whites are therefore ready to make him the highest-paid player at the club to secure his long-term future in West Yorkshire.

Compared to his England teammates, Phillips is reportedly earning considerably less – his current deal was signed in 2019 when he was a Championship player.

That contract still has a healthy three years left with it expiring in 2024 but Leeds are still willing to extend it and offer him a lot more money.

This comes as no shock given Phillips’ influence on Marcelo Bielsa’s team – he is a key part of their growing status as a Premier League side.

He also introduced himself as a star on the international stage with his great performances for England this summer during Euro 2020.

SpursWeb Opinion 

Phillips is a class act who would be a great acquisition for every Premier League side. He will, however, be very difficult to steal. Leeds would not let him go easy and he is born and bred in Yorkshire so he is very happy where he is.
