Norwich have reportedly joined the race to sign Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips this summer.
According to Football Insider, Norwich, Bournemouth and Southampton are all interested in landing him ahead of next season.
Phillips was named in the Championship Team of the Season for his impressive performances in midfield, catching the eye of those in charge at Norwich.
The report claims that Norwich are preparing a “significant” bid for Phillips, although they do not state exactly how much it will be.
Football Insider do, however, claim that Bournemouth are planning a £15m swoop, which may give an indication as to how much Leeds will be asking for.
Phillips made 44 appearances for Leeds in the Championship and only missed two games in 2019 – a 3-1 defeat to Norwich and a 2-0 defeat to Brentford.
The 23-year-old is a central midfielder, but has also operated as a centre-back for Leeds in the Championship when called upon.
It must be said that this transfer seems unlikely, given the £15m price touted and Norwich sporting director Stuart Webber’s recent claims that the club will be operating with one of the lowest budget’s in Premier League history.
Leeds players Norwich could swoop for
He lost his place to Kiko in the second half of the season, but Peacock-Farrell is a young, promising, goalkeeper and would be a good addition to the squad to compete with Tim Krul.
Jansson wears his heart on his sleeve and clearly has a lot of passion for Leeds, even if that sometimes takes him over the edge. Daniel Farke could get him to turn his passion into a positive force and improve the side.
Norwich need someone to compete with Teemu Pukki next season and Kemar Roofe could do that. He works his socks off for the team and knows how to find the back of the net.
With Norwich looking for a new central midfielder, they could turn to Klich. The robust Leeds star showed an eye for goal this season and would be a great addition to Norwich’s squad.
