Long-term CHELSEA target Kalvin Phillips is reportedly desperate to leave Man City this January transfer window.

At Leeds – Phillips established himself as one of the best holding midfielders in the Premier League – and that prompted Man City boss Pep Guardiola to take him to the Etihad.

However – the move has not quite worked out and he has struggled to make an impact -with a number of injuries keeping him on the sidelines more often that he would have hoped for.

That has led to reports in the media linking the club with a potential move for the man, as he is still one of the best holding midfielders in the Premier League

England midfielder Phillips is desperate to leave last season’s treble winners and ensure he gets a decent run of games ahead of the upcoming European championships.

But, with just 17 days of the transfer window remaining, no club has yet tabled a serious offer for the former Leeds ace.

Man City boss Pep Guardiola recently admitted that he does not know if Phillips will be leaving the club by the end of the January transfer window. Guardiola was speaking ahead of Sunday’s home FA Cup tie against Huddersfield:

“I don’t know. Kalvin has been sick the last five days so hasn’t trained with us. What’s going to happen is going to happen.

“I don’t talk about the transfer window here.”
