Juventus and Liverpool have reportedly joined the chase to sign Manchester City outcast Kalvin Phillips in January.

The Daily Mail reports that Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri is a fan of the midfielder and would be keen to sign him in January due to their midfield problems.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp are also keeping tabs on the City midfielder, according to talkSPORT.

Phillips was strongly linked with a move to Liverpool during the summer transfer window, but decided to remain with City.

Reports have recently suggested that the midfielder is prepared to leave Manchester City in order to get regular first team football.

City boss Pep Guardiola commented on the midfielder’s situation last month, saying: “Marcelo (Bielsa) gave Kalvin the best of Kalvin in his career.

“I’d love to have done with Kalvin what Marcelo has done to him. We have our own specific way to play and (he) sometimes struggles in a few things, while the previous (Leeds playing style) was perfect (for him).” 

Reports have long linked Everton and Newcastle with moves for City midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
