David Norris claims it would cost more than £100million to convince Leeds United to sell Euro 2020 star Kalvin Phillips this summer.
Phillips has shone as England have reached a major tournament final for the first time since the historic World Cup win in 1966.
However, Leeds were boosted after Phillips’ agent Kevin Sharp insisted the 25-year-old has no interest in leaving his hometown club ahead of a second season in the Premier League.
Phillips made 30 first-team appearances for Marcelo Bielsa’s side last term and has started all of England’s Euro 2020 clashes en route to Sunday’s Wembley final.
Declan Rice, Phillips’ central midfield partner for the Three Lions, has been valued at more than £100million by West Ham United in a bid to deter potential suitors.
Norris, who enjoyed a three-year spell at Elland Road during his playing career, feels Leeds should follow the Hammers’ lead.
Speaking exclusively to Football FanCast, Norris said: “If Leeds don’t need to sell, they’ll stick a £100million price tag on Phillips.
“I don’t think they would even let him go for £50million at the minute. Rice is a little bit ahead of him in terms of experience and what he has done, but they are probably viewed as a very similar type of player in terms of what they can bring.
“I think Leeds will be looking for £100million or more for Phillips.”
