XC7Z030 GMII Interface via EMIO,how to connect the GTX_CLK of PHY?
Usually Mac provides 125MHz clock for PHY GTX_CLK.

You can connect GTX_CLK to GEM GMIITXCLK.
We have an example design in this AR: https://www.xilinx.com/support/answers/51616.html.
Btw, are you going to use GMII to connect to PHY directly?
By just connecting the pins directly to the PHY might not meet the setup and hold requirements of the external interface.This is why in this AR, we used some synchronization logic.
There might be a better way to do it but the best thing to do is to place some timing constraints and have a way to meet them.
Other customers would reduce the pin counts by using GMII2RGMII shim on the PL.

hi,How do you connect the GTX_CLK of your PHY chip to the MAC of the Z7030, and let the MAC provide a 125M clock to the PHY chip, how did you solve this problem, I also want to use PL's EMIO to expand the Gigabit Ethernet port?
