Liverpool defender Nat Phillips wanted by five clubs

Interested clubs are queuing for Liverpool defender Nat Phillips.

The Athletic reports Phillips is at the centre of a transfer race reportedly involving at least five clubs.

Amid an injury crisis in defence, Phillips enjoyed a breakthrough campaign last season, making 20 appearances in all competitions.

That included five successive Premier League starts at the end of the season as the Reds went unbeaten to claim a top four finish.

But with Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip returning from injury and Ibrahima Konate having been signed from RB Leipzig, Phillips has fallen far down the pecking order.

Jurgen Klopp is set to sanction a departure for the 24-year-old, Bayer Leverkusen and West Ham have joined Burnley, Brighton and Newcastle in the race to sign him.

It is stated though that any potential exit is not imminent, highlighted by his substitute appearance in the win over Mainz on Friday.
