Former Arsenal player Lee Dixon believes Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips would be a ‘good fit’ for his old club.

The Englishman has established himself as one of the division’s most dynamic midfielders since the Whites returned to the top flight two years ago with the star’s absence through injury this campaign having a huge impact with his boyhood club fighting for top flight survival.

Manchester United have been touted with a keen interest in Kalvin this year with interim manager Ralf Rangnick a huge fan of the 26-year-old Phillips.

During his interview for the job at the Theatre of Dreams, the German reportedly identified midfield as a zone of weakness and suggested the Red Devils look into signing him.

Aston Villa and West Ham United are also interested in landing the player this summer with Jesse Marsch’s side eager to get their prized possession to commit to a fresh contract.

Lee hopes to see the Emirates Stadium outfit join the race.


‘I like Kalvin Phillips, I am a big fan. I think he would be a good fit. I just like the way he is an all-round [player],’ he told Seaman Says.

He hasn’t played any football since December but Kalvin’s back among the subs as the team fought back to secure a vital victory over Wolves last Friday.
