A transfer from Kalvin Philipps to Manchester City is becoming more and more likely, with his club Leeds United already looking for a replacement. Now the club is said to have considered Tyler Adams from RB Leipzig.

Phillips goes, Adams comes? Leeds United fear losing midfielder Kalvin Phillips to Manchester City and are already planning to sign RB Leipzig star Tyler Adams, the Daily Mirror reports. The 23-year-old’s contract with the Saxons, to which he joined in January 2019, does not expire until the summer of 2025.

Short, compact, clear

Marsch and Adams have a common past: Adams’ previous history with Leeds coach Jesse Marsch speaks in favor of a change. The US international has already trained with the New York Red Bulls under the 48-year-old compatriot.

Other transfers: In addition to a potential transfer from Adams, Leeds have already signed Marc Roca from Bayern Munich and Brenden Aaronson from FC Red Bull Salzburg. This strengthening of the midfield also points to an imminent change from Phillips.
