Liverpool’s top transfer target for January

In the January transfer window, Liverpool is considering a move for Kalvin Phillips, a midfield player whose stay at Manchester City is not improving.

In the past, Jurgen Klopp has praised Kalvin Phillips specifically, fueling speculation that Liverpool will make a move for the disregarded midfield player.

Prior to leading Leeds to their first season back in the top level, Phillips established his reputation at Leeds by aiding in their promotion to the Premier League.

He received a lucrative transfer to Manchester City in the summer of 2021 as a result of his performances, however the move has not been successful.

The Englishman’s lone start came in the Carabao Cup loss to Newcastle, out of just eight outings across all competitions.

Nevertheless, it’s evident that Klopp thinks highly of Phillips despite his challenging tenure at the Etihad Stadium.

The 27-year-old was being considered by Liverpool back when he was at Leeds. That season, when the Reds faced Leeds, Klopp orchestrated a convincing 3-0 victory for his team.

Subsequently, he disclosed that his strategy revolved around preventing Phillips from gaining any advantage over the game. Furthermore, Klopp’s admiration for the England international was evident at the moment.

“Our idea was to cut out Phillips, which is important, and to cut out the passes they want to play to find him in the centre and that takes out a bit of their game plan,” Klopp stated following the victory for his team.
