According to reports, Manchester City have reached an agreement with Leeds to make the England international their third signing of the summer transfer window.
It’s understood that Phillips will join the Blues for an initial fee of £42million, with a further £3million being paid in add-ons.
He will become the third City signing following Julián Álvarez £14m deal from River Plate in January Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund for £51m deal for striker.
Kalvin Phillips has been the subject of interest from Manchester United back in April when the Reds were working on a deal to try and lure him to Old Trafford.
However, City won the race for the Leeds-born midfielder and will now be achieving his dream of playing Champions League football.
The 26-year-old midfielder has been keen on a move to the Etihad Stadium since it became clear that Pep Guardiola was interested.
The English midfielder who is currently on holiday is set to return at the start of the July with the potential to complete his transfer.
Kalvin Phillips was identified as City’s top target as a replacement for Fernandinho after an impressive role as a defensive midfielder under Marcelo Bielsa and his impact saw him become a regular for England.
Kalvin Phillips transfer to Manchester City means Arsenal’s pursuit of Leeds United winger Raphinha could have potentially hit an obstacle.
It is believed the West Yorkshire club does not want to see two high-profile players leave the club this summer, this could put any potential Raphinha move under threat.
