According to sources, West Ham is reportedly interested in investigating a deal that would see Kalvin Phillips transfer to the London Stadium if Manchester City is successful in their pursuit of Declan Rice.

Because West Ham thinks Rice is worth at least £100 million, they have since rejected a second offer for the highly sought-after midfielder, which was for £75 million plus up to £ 15 million in add-ons.

According to sources, West Ham is reportedly interested in investigating a deal that would see Kalvin Phillips transfer to the London Stadium if Manchester City is successful in their pursuit of Declan Rice.

According to ESPN, Man City may have another option to sign the midfielder, one that involves a player-and-cash offer.

Even though Phillips struggled in his first season at the Etihad, making just four starts across all competitions as Pep Guardiola’s team blasted to a Treble-winning campaign, Hammers manager David Moyes is a huge fan of the 27-year-old.

The manager who won the Europa Conference League tried to acquire Phillips during the January 2022 transfer window, but their £55 million offer was turned down.

Just six months later, the player left Elland Road for a sum of £42 million due to Man City’s attraction.

The player himself is eager to stay and compete for his spot in Manchester, despite Man City’s desire to sign Rice and West Ham’s interest in his England teammate Phillips, who scored his first international goal against North Macedonia on Monday.

“I intend to remain at City.” There is no need for me to quit since we recently won the Treble. I’ll have to think about it definitely if I don’t play,” he remarked.

But I can’t give it a year and then declare, “I’m not playing, so I’m leaving.” It can take some time to establish yourself in the team, as you have seen with numerous City players.

I’m hoping to have a good off-season and then work hard when the season starts up again.

‘”I’ll talk to Pep,” I said. I’m not sure if it will be during the summer since everyone likes to relax and everyone wants to have their own space away from football, so I’ll probably wait till I return for pre-season, but I’ll just speak to him and have a good discussion.
