The former Villa striker also believes that Stoke City goalkeeper Jack Butland would be a good addition to the current Villa squad.
According to The Mirror, Villa - who will play in the Premier League next season after clinching promotion from the Championship via the playoffs - are interested in signing Phillips from Leeds in the summer transfer window.
According to Sky Sports, Villa want to secure the services of Stoke goalkeeper Butland this summer.
Collymore believes that Stoke star Butland is not at his peak, and that the 26-year-old England international goalkeeper has plenty to move.
The former Villa striker has also suggested that that sooner or later, Phillips will want to move to the Premier League and leave Leeds.
Big if we got both.— Stan Collymore (@StanCollymore) June 14, 2019
KP has plenty of experience for his age and will want sooner or later to step up in division, plus we need legs, physicality and discipline in MF.
Goalie, for me, is most important signing of the summer. JB nowhere near his peak and plenty still to prove. https://t.co/vY8NUTDLtg
