Irons linked with shock City swoop

West Ham have been linked with a shock swoop to sign Kalvin Phillips from Manchester City this summer.

This source has to be taken with a pinch of salt, as it is coming from Football Insider, but there could well be a grain of truth to it.

The Irons did make a bid for Phillips last January, before he eventually moved to City.

He has struggled for game time at the Etihad Stadium, though, and has played just one minute of Premier League football this season, while making two Champions League appearances that total 40 minutes.

Football Insider reports that Phillips remains highly-rated by David Moyes, even though City manager Pep Guardiola has publicly challenged the England international to lose weight and get back to fitness.

Declan Rice is, naturally, likely to leave the club this summer and Phillips is said to remain an option as a potential long-term replacement for his England team-mate.

As we’ve said, this isn’t likely to happen any time soon, but keep an eye on this one.

One comment on “Irons linked with shock City swoop

  1. It would be another terrible signing by Moyes and another complete waste of money. He is totally overrated and like the Everton CB Keane absolutely rubbish. What is going on in the club, the recruitment team are an absolute joke in my honest opinion. As for Moyes we should not give him another penny as he is clueless. Look at Leeds they sold Phillips to City and bought a better player in the USA international to replace him, that is proper transfer business. We have a class midfield of rice, fornals and Paqueta but for some incredibly reasoning Moyes refuses to see/use it. The sooner Moyes is gone the quicker we can move forward as a club and get back on the right path.
