Bournemouth are set to rival Southampton to the signing of Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
According to Football Insider, Bournemouth are preparing a £25m double swoop for Kalvin Phillips and Jack Clarke from Leeds.
Southampton have been linked with a move for Phillips, who has impressed in the Championship this season for the Yorkshire-based side.
Leeds are currently sat second in the Championship, four points behind league leaders Norwich – with Sheffield United three points behind in third.
If Leeds are able to secure promotion to the Premier League, neither Bournemouth nor Southampton may be able to land Phillips – who would be a key player for Leeds in the top-flight.
Earlier this month, Phillips was named in the official Championship Team of the Season, following his excellent performances for Leeds this season.
The 23-year-old has made over 100 appearances for Leeds since breaking through into the first-team in 2014.
Championship players Southampton could sign
The Sheffield United centre-back has been exceptional this season at the back.
23 goals and seven assists for Maupay this season. He would add something different to the Saints attack.
The Algerian international would add some extra flair to Southampton’s midfield options.
Jansson has been excellent for Leeds over the past few seasons and deserves a shot at Premier League football.
