Manchester City gave Kalvin Phillips the opportunity to find a new club during the summer window, with Pep Guardiola since making it clear that the Blues had spoken to the midfielder.

That resulted in the England international deciding he wanted to stay and fight for minutes at the Etihad, yet now the situation is different and a transfer is being considered as Phillips eyes an important role at Euro 2024.

Multiple clubs in Italy, mainly Juventus, have been linked with the signing. The Italian media have usually presented Newcastle United as the main competitor, given they’ve lost Sandro Tonali to a gambling ban.

Now, Tottenham are pushed forward. Rudy Galetti reports Tottenham are putting ‘pressure’ on for the winter-market signing.

According to him, ‘everything is possible’.

Tottenham and other Premier League sides could probably offer a better deal to Manchester City than Juventus would want to.

Whether the prospect of competing against Guardiola’s side will be something causing doubts for the Premier League champions, could depend on where Ange Postecoglou has Tottenham in January.

For now, interest from Tottenham and Newcastle would provide a headache for Juventus, who desperately need a midfielder in January.
