Leeds United and England star Kalvin Phillips would “fit Liverpool perfectly”, but he would cost around £100m, according to Perry Groves.
The midfielder has come on leaps and bounds as a footballer since Marcelo Bielsa took over at Leeds United.
Phillips has a key figure in 2019/20 as Leeds ended a Covid-19 disrupted season as Championship champions to secure their Premier League return.
The 25-year-old shone for the Whites last season as they sealed a ninth-place finish in the top flight. After this, Phillips starred for England at Euro 2020 as Gareth Southgate‘s side reached the final of the tournament.
Liverpool are said to have shown interest in the midfielder in recent months.
This comes after reports emerged suggesting that Jordan Henderson’s future is in doubt.
Groves – who won the First Division title with Arsenal twice between 1988 and 1991 – has spoken about Phillips with talkSPORT. He believes that the midfielder is worth £100m:
“Kalvin Phillips fits Liverpool perfectly. “The energy they play with, the closing down, his athleticism, his passing range.“What would he cost? £100million.”
