But the 26-year-old Leeds midfielder is also being ‘eyed by Real Madrid’.
Publishing in Spanish El Nacional reports that Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool are ready to make offers for the Yorkshire-born player.
Phillips was ‘seduce’ by the idea of playing football in the limelight at Anfield, where he would play in the Champions League.
