According to Football Insider, the 26-year-old is reportedly a target for Manchester City. It will be interesting to see whether the Premier League champions can secure his signature in the coming weeks.
According to the latest reports, the midfielder has already informed Leeds that he wants to leave this summer and join the Premier League champions.
Meanwhile, the Athletic adds that City believe that an offer of around £45-50M would be enough to persuade Leeds into selling the prized prospect.
Phillips has established himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the league, and he would be a quality signing for Pep Guardiola this summer.
Manchester City parted ways with Brazilian defensive midfielder Fernandinho at the end of last season, and they will need to bring in a quality alternative.
The England international is certainly good enough to play for a club in the Champions League, and Manchester City could help him fulfil his ambitions.
Furthermore, the 26-year-old is a mercurial talent who will improve further by working alongside top-class players and a manager like Guardiola.
Leeds barely escaped relegation last season, and a player of Phillips’ ability deserves to play at a higher level.
It remains to be seen whether Leeds are prepared to sell him for a reasonable price this summer.
The midfielder helped the Whites secure promotion to the Premier League and establish themselves as a top-flight club over the last couple of seasons.
He will be hoping that his boyhood club will now allow him to move on and achieve his dreams with a bigger club.
