With Fabinho’s departure, Liverpool urgently needed to secure a defensive midfielder, and after missing out on Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia, they signed Japanese midfielder Wataru Endo.
The club is looking for further reinforcements, with Ryan Gravenberch and Andre among the top candidates.
Meanwhile, Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips, a proven midfielder in the Premier League, is said to be one of the candidates.
He only joined City last summer and was unlikely to be sold to a rival team, and we thought it was only a gossip, but it appears that inquiries have been conducted.
Fabrizio Romano admitted that it is true that Liverpool made a tip-off to check on the English midfielder’s movements, but said that no progress has been made at this point and that the player’s priority is to stay at the Etihad Stadium.
“Liverpool started the conversation to be informed on the situation of another player, who is Kalvin Phillips.”
“It’s true that Liverpool asked about the situation of Kalvin Phillips because the priority of the player has always been to stay at Manchester City and fight for his place at City.”
“But then, at the moment, there is no concrete negotiation club to club.”Kick
After signing the 30-year-old captain of the Japanese national team, Liverpool’s next target is a midfielder in his early 20s.
Phillips has plenty of experience in England and, barring injury, would undoubtedly be a valuable asset, but the generational change that Liverpool pushed for this summer makes little sense.
City has not been able to get rid of the reserve Spanish midfielder Rodri, but it is hard to imagine them giving away a player so vital to their season to a rival team.
Kalvin Phillips’ future playing at Anfield is almost impossible to see, but the odds seem to increase if he misses out on other targets, but what will happen…?
