Arsenal linked with Leeds United starlet Archie Gray

Archie Gray has been catching the eye of many top clubs since his debut - the third-generation star has swiftly become an established member of Leeds United’s first team. Now, according to HITC, he could be in Arsenal’s crosshairs ahead of the summer transfer window.

Leeds recently failed to gain promotion back to the Premier League after they were beaten 1-0 in the Championship playoff final by Southampton on Sunday afternoon. A slew of their top players could leave the club due to this - with Gray potentially being among them.

Everton targeting Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips

Everton could face another difficult Premier League season in 2024/25, with their ownership situation still up in the air. Their transfer budget is limited - due to this, according to BBC Sport, the Blues could explore a loan deal for Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips in the summer window.

Phillips’ career has been on a noticeable downward trajectory ever since his departure from Leeds United in the summer of 2022. He has struggled to break into the first team at City, making just 16 Premier League appearances over the course of two season - a disastrous loan spell at West Ham did little to raise his stock. He will be hoping for a career renaissance at Goodison Park should he agree a deal to join the Toffees.
