LONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the European Commission's Ursula von der Leyen are likely to speak later in the week as the Brexit talks get to a crunch point, the chief political commentator of Britain's Times Radio said.

Tom Newton Dunn said officials on both sides were setting up a phone call, or possibly even a face-to-face meeting, in what could be a pivotal moment for the free trade talks.
