Manchester City could reportedly let Kalvin Phillips leave on loan, with Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp interested in the midfielder.

According to journalist Alex Crook, the English side could let the Three Lions international leave on loan if they manage to sign Matheus Nunes from Wolves before deadline day.

City signed Phillips last year for £45m, though the transfer is yet to work out with the midfielder struggling for fitness and form under Pep Guardiola.

As a result, Phillips could now be set to leave City already, with Liverpool interested in signing the former Leeds United star, potentially on loan.

With Liverpool light in midfield, Phillips could be a fantastic signing. And Klopp is believed to be a big fan of the 27-year-old, who could be a hit at Anfield.

Crook said: “Kalvin Phillips is a name that has been mentioned to me in the last couple of weeks as someone that Klopp is really interested in. It might be possible that Manchester City would let them go on loan.”

Liverpool signing a player from City will no doubt ruffle some feathers amongst fans, yet given how good Phillips is and how desperate he is for a change in scenery, Anfield could be ideal for the midfielder.

The England star has shown during his time with Leeds that he has the quality to dominate in the Premier League, with Klopp a dream manager for Phillips to learn under.

If City are willing to accept a loan offer from Liverpool, a deal could be made in the coming days that might see Phillips head to Merseyside just one year after moving to Manchester.
