 Newcastle United are expected to have to break their transfer record to sign Kalvin Phillips this summer.

The Development of Kalvin Phillips

The Magpies have been linked with rumors of buying the Leeds United star, who could move away at the end of the season. According to the Daily Mail, Phillips is one of many midfielders that Newcastle are considering signing. He would be an interesting signing for Eddie Howe, but as a player it will cost them dearly.

According to innews, The Magpies are ready to offer to buy the England player. However, Leeds are said to be trying to tie him to a new contract. Information adds that Phillips will cost around £60 million. That’s a lot of money and will make him Newcastle’s record signing.

 Why Leeds increased sharply after EURO.

Phillips wouldn’t have had this price 12 months ago, but EURO 2020 has changed everything. He was a key player for Gareth Southgate, starting every game as England reached the European Championship final.

Phillips has proven he is capable of playing at the highest level, which is why Leeds are keen to keep him. But he is a player who can transform the midfield of Newcastle, which is financially well off.

However, Newcastle will receive stiff competition from Manchester United, the club is also looking to rebuild the squad.
