Kalvin Phillips Raphinha Leeds United

City are set to have another crack at replacing Fernandinho while Liverpool look set to finally move for Raphinha…

 

PEP ASKS CITY TO SIGN LEEDS STAR
Pep Guardiola reportedly wants one more go at replacing Fernandinho. And the Manchester City boss is casting his eye across the Pennines…

City have been searching for the Brazilian’s replacement seemingly since the dawn of time and the clock is ticking for Guardiola, with the midfielder’s contract up at the end of the season.

So the City boss has reportedly asked his board to go and sign Kalvin Phillips from Leeds. That’s the claim of Fichajes, at least.

The report mentions Phillips’ release clause which was said to be in the ludicrously low region of £20million. Though the prospect of the England midfielder being allowed to leave Elland Road for such a miserly sum appears highly unlikely. He last signed a new deal with his boyhood club two years ago and those terms still have three years to run.

LIVERPOOL TO FINALLY MOVE FOR RAPHINHA
Liverpool pulled Leeds’ pants down at Elland Road on Sunday and the Reds are hoping to repeat the trick when they return for Raphinha…

The Independent reckons Liverpool are ready to conclude a five-year scouting project, which began at a youth tournament in Brazil, by making a move for the 24-year-old.

The Reds’ interest in Raphinha is well known – they and Manchester United were heavily-linked with a move in the summer. And Liverpool are set to face competition from a host of other clubs across Europe, with the winger’s contract running until 2024.
