Read Up “After a U-turn, Man City may offer Kalvin Phillips an opportunity to prove himself this season.” The Athletic claims that barely a year after the midfielder’s £42 million transfer from Leeds United, City was willing to sell him this summer.

After a challenging first season, Phillips is eager to stay at the Etihad Stadium and succeed in Pep Guardiola’s squad.

Mateo Kovacic’s arrival has increased competition for Phillips’ spot in City’s midfield, but it is believed that the team is now content for him to stay after losing Ilkay Gundogan and with Bernardo Silva still being linked to leaving.

Hugo Lloris, the captain of Tottenham, has so far been unsuccessful in securing a transfer away, so Harry Kane is not the only player at Tottenham who is playing with uncertainty.

The former France goalie was permitted to stay at the club’s Enfield training facility to “explore potential transfer opportunities” while Ange Postecoglou’s team traveled to Perth, Bangkok, and Singapore last month.

The signing of teenage Spanish goalkeeper Arnau Tenas by Paris Saint-Germain on Sunday, though, has closed one possible exit route for 36-year-old Lloris from Spurs.

Lloris was among the numerous players in Tottenham’s overcrowded roster who were anticipated to go, but Giovani Lo Celso appears to be in line for a chance to turn around his career while still playing for the club.

Lo Celso joined for Spurs in the summer of 2019 for £55 million, but he had spent the previous 18 months away from north London at Villarreal while on loan.

Lo Celso, a midfielder for Argentina, has drawn the attention of new manager Postecoglou this summer, and after scoring in friendlies against West Ham and Lion City Sailors, the midfielder is expected to stay with the team heading into the Premier League season.

For several other senior players, offers will be considered, while young players Alfie Devine and Dane Scarlett are being prepared for loan moves away.
