Report: Three clubs have expressed interest in signing alleged Spurs target on loan

The Guardian have claimed that three different clubs have expressed an interest in signing Kalvin Phillips on loan in January but Tottenham are not one of them.

Spurs are reportedly among the top three suitors for the City star’s signing, along with Juventus and Newcastle United. Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness) has just named the Lilywhites as one of the three teams involved in Phillips’ transfer rumors.

The 27-year-old, nevertheless, thinks he has a better chance of gaining playing time at St. James Park than at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, according to a report from 90 minutes earlier this month.

Football also reported on something somewhat similar.A few weeks ago, Alasdair Gold of London reported that the England international is demanding more playing time than Spurs are prepared to give him.

Spurs not one of three contenders for Kalvin Phillips

The three clubs that have looked into a loan transfer for Phillips are Juventus, Crystal Palace, and Tottenham. The Guardian no longer lists Tottenham as one of the teams fighting for the player’s signing.

The source goes on to say that the former Leeds United player is “desperate” to get back on the field and get out of the Etihad Stadium, since his spot in England’s Euro 2024 team is at stake.

Spurs’ focus, in my opinion, would have shifted from Phillips and their other midfield targets to Conor Gallagher, given the latest reports that Chelsea is open to considering bids for the Blues star.


Tottenham captain Heung-min Son makes clear challenge to Richarlison with specific target

Heung-min Son informed Richarlison that he must continue searching for the net.

The Tottenham striker scored the game’s first goal against old team Everton on Saturday to make it four goals from three games. After deceiving for so long after joining Spurs for £50 million at the start of the previous season, Richarlison’s purple patch is arriving at the ideal moment for the team as they aim for a top-four finish.

Leading scorer Son, who has already eclipsed his return for the whole previous season, may be out for up to a month while playing for South Korea in the Asia Cup the following month.

That will place an even greater onus on Richarlison to keep up his recent run and Spurs captain Son is now urging his club-mate to hit the baseline target of 15 goals. And Richarlison’s best return in the Premier League to date is 13, which he managed in each of his first two seasons at Everton.

“Everybody is very happy for him and very pleased,” Son said. “Richi has to know that he has to score more goals when you play for Spurs. He needs to score more than 15 goals to be striker. Richi is the type of guy who will want to score more and I hope he continues to so he can help the team.”

Defender Cristian Romero is expected to miss Thursday’s trip to Brighton after coming off against Everton because of discomfort in his right hamstring.

Head coach Ange Postecoglou will provided a fresh update during his press conference on Wednesday afternoon to preview the visit to Albion.

whole back Goalkeeper Yves Bissouma is once more suspended, although midfielder Destiny Udogie is set to return from suspension. James Maddison, an offensive midfielder, and center defender Micky van de Ven are not currently ready for selection, although they hope to play again shortly after suffering injuries.

Injury concerns continue to plague wide players Manor Solomon, Ivan Perisic, and Ryan Sessegnon in addition to midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur.
