Man City preparing bid for Leeds midfielder Phillips

Manchester City are preparing a bid for Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

Fernandinho said farewell to fans at Monday's Premier League title parade as he heads back to Athletico Paranaense after nine years at the Etihad.

Phillips has been identified as possessing the perfect profile for the squad and City are expected to pursue him in the coming weeks, says the Daily Mail.

The England international has shone for Leeds, despite the club only saving themselves from relegation on a dramatic final day of the season. Leeds' survival is expected to increase the fee they want for Phillips.

Although primarily a holding midfielder, the 26-year-old could be seen as an option to the right of Pep Guardiola's first choice at that position, Rodri.

There will be a need for at least one new recruit in that area as City look to follow up the eye-catching capture of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland. Julian Alvarez, another forward, is joining from River Plate.
