TeamTalk editor James Marshment has tipped Leeds United to sign Romeo Lavia in exchange for Kalvin Phillips.
It is no secret that Manchester City are extremely keen on signing the Whites midfielder this summer, but it remains unclear as to what they will have to offer up to get the deal over the line.
According to a recent report in The Athletic, Leeds are very keen on signing Lavia, and so he could be used as a bargaining tool in an transfer that might see Phillips go the other way.
When discussing the possible move on the JUSTJOE FOOTBALL SHOW, Marshment said that he feels as though a swap could be ‘highly plausible’.
He said (11:38): “I think that’s highly plausible to be honest with you. Leeds have clearly got an interest, independent of talks about it, and a few other well established newspapers have talked about it. So I think the interest is there.
“[Lavia is a] Belgium Under 21 international. He comes, like you say, very highly rated.”
