Leeds United line up Red Bull duo as Kalvin Phillips replacements



Leeds United are lining up RB Leipzig midfielder Tyler Adams and RB Salzburg's Mo Camara as potential replacements for Manchester City bound Kalvin Phillips.

The talismanic Leeds midfielder is set to join Pep Guardiola in Manchester this summer, in a deal worth up to £45m.

Jesse Marsch has already added Bayern Munich midfielder Marc Roca to his ranks in a deal worth around £12m, but will be looking to further strengthen in central midfield following Phillips' departure.

And, to that end, The Yorkshire Evening Post have reported that a pair of RB targets are in his sights, with Tyler Adams and Mo Camara currently playing at German side RB Leipzig and Austria's RB Salzburg respectively.

Marsch took Adams to Leipzig, and would be keen to work with the American again should the chance emerge, while he has already raided RB Salzburg twice this summer for Brendan Aaronson and Rasmus Kristensen for a combined £40m.

Camara is thought to be a pricier option, but should sales go through as expected, money may not be a problem for the Lilywhites this summer.

Raphinha deal heats up

Brazilian winger Raphinha is expected to follow Kalvin Phillips out of the door this summer, with Arsenal thought to be leading the race for the 25 year old.

The Gunners have already seen one bid rejected, but are set to return with an improved bid and other interested parties seem to have concluded that Mikel Arteta's side are in the driving seat for the wide man.

Should he also depart, there would be plenty of money to reinvest into the first team, but there will be major holes to fill.
