EXCLUSIVE: Arsenal, Everton among 12 Prem sides scouting Leeds ace

Leeds midfield ace Kalvin Phillips is being chased by a host of Premier League clubs, with Everton leading the chase for his signature.

Arsenal and Tottenham have also checked on the 22-year-old, who can play in midfield and defence, but it is understood at least a dozen top-flight sides have watched him in recent weeks.

Phillips has shone under the stewardship of Marcelo Bielsa, and whilst he is loving life at his hometown club – a move to the top-flight would be hard to resist, although Leeds and the player would be in no hurry to do a deal.

We can also reveal that Phillips is one of the Championship players that England boss Gareth Southgate has earmarked as a possible candidate for his senior squad.
