Aston Villa could swoop for Kalvin Phillips

Gabby Agbonlahor has dropped a teasing Aston Villa transfer claim which could well excite Steven Gerrard and the club’s supporters.

What’s the word?

An interesting transfer claim has dropped from the 35-year-old via talkSPORT regarding Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

The former Villa striker explained that Phillips “would love to come” to the club as opposed to some other suitors.

The Leeds star is in high demand right now, with various Premier League clubs being linked with him over the previous few months such as Manchester United and Liverpool.

Gerrard given Phillips transfer boost

There seems little doubt Phillips that is one of the most sought-after midfielders in the Premier League at the moment.

Rising through the Leeds academy to feature for England in a major tournament, it has been an exponential growth which doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon.

Should Villa make a move for Kalvin Phillips?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 26-year-old has been vital in preserving Leed’s top-flight status. and a move elsewhere surely seems a matter of when and not if based on the widespread interest in him.

A hamstring injury disrupted the middle segment of his season, which arguably contributed to the Whites’ poor form as they won only three times without him, yet he has still made 18 appearances in all competitions this term.

With his market value reaching a career high of £45m at the end of March 2022, it is going to take a major transfer fee for Leeds to even consider selling him, especially to a team in the same division.

Nonetheless, Villa and Gerrard could be tempted to make an offer for him, particularly if Jesse Marsch’s team are relegated at the end of the current campaign.

Can you beat this impossible Aston Villa quiz?!

The midfielder would no doubt boost Villa’s options in the centre of the park and give them a solid base around which to build, as Gerrard will surely be targeting a European spot next season.

The 41-year-old Villa manager must be excited by Agbonlahor’s transfer claim about Phillips, whose tremendous 7.01 WhoScored rating for 2020/21 would suggest that he would be a huge enhancement to the Midlanders’ current squad.
