David Norris reckons that keeping hold of Kalvin Phillips is Leeds’ number one priority in the transfer market this summer.
The Yorkshire-born midfielder is currently performing right at the top of his matches for England at the Euro’s – starting all six games on route to Sunday’s final for Gareth Southgate’s men.
But whilst Phillips’ form has been crucial for England, his excellent performances has led to interest from some top European clubs, with Juventus being one of them.
His form shouldn’t come as a great surprise, though, with the 25-year-old having taken to the Premier League like a duck to water and receiving his first call-up by Southgate before he had even featured in the top-flight.
Phillips is still tied down to a long-term deal at Elland Road, and has openly expressed his love for the club, which would make any potential move away from Leeds highly unlikely at this time.
When asked whether keeping Phillips at the club is Leeds’ most important piece of business, Norris exclusively told Football FanCast:
“I think so, yes. Once Bielsa signs his contract, this will follow it closely, especially with what he’s done and especially how pivotal he was for Leeds.
“This will be massive if they get through this summer and he’s still a Leeds player.”
