TRANSFER NEWS UPDATE: After Endo, Man City midfielder Kalvin Phillips is now on Liverpool’s radar

Rumor has it that Liverpool is considering a transfer for Kalvin Phillips, a midfielder for Manchester City.

Last summer, Phillips transferred to City from Leeds United to take over as captain for Fernandinho, who had left the team. However, Phillips failed in his first season. The 27-year-old wasn’t given much of a chance to establish himself after missing the first half of the season due to a shoulder injury, according to boss Pep Guardiola.

Phillips’ future with the club is uncertain because he only participated in two Premier League games last season, both of which were played after the championship was locked up. He was strongly associated with a departure early in the window even though he expressed his wish to stay with the Etihad.

My intention is to stay put. Now that we have won the treble, there is no reason for me to leave, he remarked, other than the fact that if I decide not to play, I will have to give it some serious thought.

“I can’t say, ‘I’m not playing, so I’m quitting,’ after a year has passed. While I was at Manchester City, we won championships, but I didn’t get to play as frequently as I would have liked.

However, if TalkSport claims that Jurgen Klopp was considering the player before he chose City are accurate, Liverpool may put that dedication to the test. The acquisition of Moises Caicedo and Romeo Lavia by Chelsea has made Liverpool’s transfer problems worse.

Liverpool still needs a defensive midfielder in light of the exits of Fabinho and Jordan Henderson, even with the addition of Wataru Endo.

Joao Cancelo appears to be moving toward signing with Barcelona in the meantime.

The fullback, who played for Bayern Munich for the second half of last season on loan, will undoubtedly leave the team once more this summer. Cancelo hasn’t appeared in any of City’s opening three games this season, and a move to Barcelona appears inevitable.

Initially, it will be a loan, but Barça will have to pay him $30 million (around $37 million) if he participates in 70% of the team’s games this season (in all competitions).
