ENGLISH PREMIER LEAGUE

Manchester City midfielder could be on his way to Juventus in January

Manchester City

Manchester City is actively seeking a solution for Kalvin Phillips, who has struggled to secure playing time at the Etihad Stadium.

Phillips has not met the expectations at City since his signing to replace Fernandinho.

Although he is still consider for action by the England national team,

He recognises the need for more playing time at the club level.

Manchester City is also aware of this and is looking to send him out on loan,

Possibly for a six-month period, which could pique the interest of Juventus.

Juventus is in need of new midfielders after losing Paul Pogba and Nicolo Fagioli to bans,

Making Phillips a potential addition for the second half of the season.

According to a report on Calciomercato, the Premier League champions are actively working to find new accommodation for Phillips and are already considering offering him to Juventus.

What does Juventus says about Manchester City

We need options in midfield and having Phillips would be great even if he does not play every game.

He will give us options and force our other midfielders to step up their performances as well, otherwise, they will be benched.

However, City must also agree to pay a significant portion of his salary before the deal can happen, considering that Premier League players are always on huge salaries.

Juventus and Newcastle United are expected to be forced into the market to find cover for midfielders Nicolo Fagioli

Who has been banned for seven months, and Sandro Tonali, who is also facing a lengthy suspension.

Moving to Juventus for the second half of the season could be seen as a good solution by both Phillips and City, with the Italian club not in European competition.

Newcastle have shown an interest in Phillips in the past but,

Like Juventus, would most likely want only a loan deal in January,

It remains to be whether City would allow him to move to a Premier League rival on a temporary basis.
