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.
