Juventus are now ‘accelerating’ to get Kalvin Phillips signed from Manchester City, the Italian media today says.

TuttoMercatoWeb today feature a quite positive update on the situation, as both the player and the English club are being open to the negotiation.

As Juventus are said to be looking for a ‘sprint’ in their pursuit, it’s said a general agreement with Phillips is now close.

The midfielder is keen on a ‘change of scenery’, since he hasn’t been playing much at Manchester City and wants to convince Gareth Southgate he deserves to hold a place in the national team for the Euros.

Juventus’ attempt is for a loan deal until next summer, with the clubs splitting his salary. There are ‘close contacts’ between them right now, although Pep Guardiola’s final approval is still missing.

TuttoMercatoWeb highlight that the Bianconeri see competition from Crystal Palace and West Ham, who also ‘like’ the player, but it really sounds like it’s the Old Lady who stand closer to the signing at this point.
