Liverpool’s first team is one of the mightiest in world football at the minute. The Reds have assembled a squad that isn’t just set to dominate for years to come but will age together, meaning that soon we’ll have to start looking at successors to our current stars. Some Kopites have reacted to rumours linking Liverpool with a move for Kalvin Phillips.
Leeds born and bred
Kalvin Phillips was born in Leeds and has risen through the ranks of the club’s youth system.
24-years-old he is most often deployed as a defensive midfielder but can also fill in as a centre back when needed.
He has recently won his first England cap due to his strong form in the Championship last season and his strong start to life in the Premier League.
In total he’s made 185 senior appearances for Leeds United despite his young age.
Liverpool want Kalvin Phillips
According to The Mirror, Liverpool are tracking Kalvin Phillips.
The outlet has claimed that the Reds are weighing up a £50m move for the Yorkshire enforcer.
Spurs are also said to be interested in the young Englishman given his impressive start to life in the top flight.
It is only natural that the Reds would be tracking him given the shift he put in at Anfield at the start of the season.

He is still young, he could be a long term option.

The source isn’t the most reliable for some fans.
It’s from the Mirror, they even linked us with Jack Butland for more clicks. Not gonna read too much into this.
