Tottenham Hotspur are in the hunt to sign Leeds United star Kalvin Phillips, according to The Mirror.
The paper say that Spurs are interested alongside Aston Villa and Newcastle, although the Elland Road outfit value the player at as much as £30m.
Phillips was a massive part of the Leeds side that came close to promotion from the English Championship last term, making 46 appearances for the club.
Before Tanguy Ndombele, Spurs fans haven’t been able to vlog about a transfer since January 2018! Judging by the video below, it’s been worth the wait…
However, entirely untested at a level above the English second-tier, the reported asking price is a little steep even in today’s inflated market.
The central midfield area may not be a massive priority for Spurs either, as some have fans pointed out, especially after the impressive capture of Tanguy Ndombele.
If Spurs are to progress from their current standing and push towards winning the Premier League, they’ll likely need a higher calibre of signing than Phillips, even if he is young and has potential at 23 years of age.

Fans aren’t very keen on seeing him arrive at the club, with many taking to Twitter over the last 48 hours to share their thoughts…
Might be a good backup signing but this shouldn’t be our priority at all, club is too big to be targeting these players

Let’s try to show a little more ambition! This includes trying to sign Isco before looking at Lo Celso and Ceballos!

[The Mirror] #THFC have tabled a £30 mil bid for #LUFC’s defensive midfielder, Kalvin Phillips.
The 23-year old is also wanted by #AVFC, #NUFC, #Wolves and #AFCB.
Pretty skeptical about Spurs bidding £30 mil for him, and DM should not be a priority over CB, RB and CF.#COYS pic.twitter.com/ggbjuycwBz
