AS Roma rival Fulham in Kalvin Phillips chase

Serie A giants AS Roma will reportedly compete with Fulham in the race to sign 28-year-old Manchester City outcast Kalvin Phillips in the summer transfer window.

According to a report by Corriere della Sera, as relayed by Sport Witness, Kalvin Phillips is the subject of interest from AS Roma. The Serie A giants are scouring the market for a midfielder in the summer transfer window. The 28-year-old Manchester City outcast is also a target for Fulham.

Kalvin Phillips and his Manchester City travails

Kalvin Phillips has seen his progress come to a grinding halt since joining Manchester City from Leeds United in July 2022. The Englishman has barely featured for the Premier League giants and was a peripheral figure for the first 18 months of his stint at the Etihad.

The 28-year-old Manchester City outcast would have hoped to resurrect his dwindling fortunes when he joined West Ham United on loan in January. However, Phillips’s struggles continued, as he managed only 320 minutes of game time across ten appearances for the East London club.

So, it is hardly surprising that the English international has no future at Manchester City, with the Premier League champions ready to cash in on him in the summer transfer window. Phillips does not have a shortage of suitors pursuing him, with Fulham and AS Roma among his prospective suitors heading into the summer transfer window.

Where next?

Fulham’s interest in Kalvin Phillips is understandable. The Cottagers have been scouring the market for a holding midfielder heading into the summer transfer window. With Joao Palhinha on the verge of joining Bayern Munich, the necessity has accentuated, making the Manchester City outcast a viable target.

As for AS Roma, they might part ways with Leandro Paredes in the summer transfer window. Daniele de Rossi will embark on his first summer transfer window as the AS Roma manager. So, the 28-year-old is an option worth considering, with Serie A being the ideal destination for him to resurrect his fortunes.

With AS Roma emerging as a potential destination for Phillips, it will be interesting to see if Fulham can tempt the 28-year-old English international without offering any European football in the 2024/25 season.
