Kalvin Phillips is ready to move on, but is questionable to join Liverpool and other rival teams

Kalvin Phillips is ready to move on, but is questionable to join Liverpool and other rival teams Transfers

Before the season began, Liverpool worked to revamp its midfielders and, despite some unexpected departures, achieved its initial goal. The club acquired the Premier League-proven Alexis Mac Allister and Hungarian gem Dominik Szoboszlai, among others.

After that, reports continued to focus on the defensive midfielder, a position that was less tapped than other positions in the midfield. Fluminense midfielder Andre and Fulham midfielder João Palhinha have been rumored to be targets.

As 2023 draws to a close, the success of Japanese midfielder Wataru Endo has made strengthening the back line more of a priority than the bottom of midfield.

Sky Sports reporter Dharmesh Sheth mentioned England midfielder Calvin Phillips, who is still the subject of interest.

“Maybe it’s best for everyone, especially Kalvin Phillips, if a move can happen,”

“But he would probably want to go to one of the big six clubs, and I just wonder whether Manchester City would want to do business with what is perceived to be a rival.”

“We saw in the summer before last that they were more than happy to allow Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko to go to Arsenal, but they ended up being the main rivals to Manchester City for the title.”

“We’ve been hearing noises about teams like Liverpool and other clubs being interested in Kalvin Phillips. I wonder whether they would really facilitate a move to a rival. I think, at this moment in time, Kalvin Phillips will probably just want to play football.”


As mentioned above, it seems unlikely that Liverpool will step on the gas pedal to acquire the defensive midfielder. Meanwhile, the former Leeds midfielder is expected to move on in search of playing opportunities, but for which club will he play…?
