Newcastle United and Juventus are among the clubs to have identified Manchester City’s Kalvin Phillips as a transfer target for January.
Both the Magpies and the Serie A side are in the market for a new midfielder, having lost Sandro Tonali and Nicolò Fagioli respectively to gambling bans.
Tutto Juve state this is where the Manchester City player would fit in for both Newcastle and the Old Lady.
The England international has found it hard to get regular game time since he arrived at the Etihad from Leeds United in 2022.
The report points out the 27-year-old’s asking price could be an issue for Newcastle, when it comes to UEFA’s FFP rules. They also add the Citizens wouldn’t want to see him join another Premier League side, and this may favour Juve.
It’s worth pointing out Pep Guardiola has recently insisted he wouldn’t have a problem letting his players join another English club.
Juve are looking to take a midfielder on loan in January and Tutto Juve state Manchester City won’t take into consideration a short-term loan deal, without an option or obligation to buy.
In addition to this, Newcastle’s firm desire to sign Phillips would also be a concern for the Turin club.
