Arsenal want Leeds star who Lee Dixon said would ‘go well with Mikel Arteta’s side’ earlier this month

Arsenal have reportedly thrown their hat in the ring to sign Leeds and England star Kalvin Phillips. It comes just days after Lee Dixon suggested the midfielder “would be a good fit for Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal system”.

Phillips, 26, has only played 15 games for Leeds in the 2021/22 season due to a long-term hamstring injury sustained in a 2-2 draw with Brentford in December. He’s about to return.

The Euro 2020 finalists were on the bench against Wolves as Leeds secured a 3-2 comeback win last time out. 90 Minute Report that Arsenal have joined the hunt for Phillips, who may decide to leave his boyhood club this summer.

The Times claims Aston Villa are the front runners in signing Phillips as they are willing to pay his £60m price tag. Just last week, Arsenal legend Dixon said ball-playing midfielder Phillips would be a “good fit”.

“I like Kalvin Phillips, I’m a big fan” Dixon narrated David Seaman’s podcast while discussing Phillips and a possible move to Arsenal. “I think he would be a good fit. I just like how he’s an all-rounder [player].”

Dixon on Phillips: Leeds star would certainly jump in at Arsenal move

Arsenal are in dire need of a midfielder. Granit Xhaka remains first choice and while he’s capable of consistent performances, he’s always in danger of receiving a red card. Phillips is head and shoulders over Xhaka.

More importantly, he fits into the Arsenal blueprint of experienced players with many years in the tank – Ben White, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Martin Odegaard, Gabriel, Aaron Ramsdale etc. White would tempt Phillips.

In fact, the two have holidayed together and are good friends – having spent 2019-20 together at Elland Road. Phillips would certainly be tempted, the Gunners have the money. Leeds would accept if £60m were tabled.
