Nat Phillips’ strong end to Liverpool last season has made him a transfer target for several Premier League clubs.

During the club’s central defender crisis last season, the 24-year-old defender made 20 appearances for the club to secure third place in the Premier and Champions League qualifiers.

Phillips shone in the absence of Liverpool’s usual defenders Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez

A number of impressive performances have led West Ham United, Newcastle United, Burnley, Brighton and Bayer Leverkusen from Germany to sign the player, according to Sky Sports.

Phillips would charge a fee of £ 15 million, and should he leave Brighton is apparently ready to meet that price.

With Ben White’s imminent departure to Arsenal, it’s no surprise that the South Coast club are targeting Phillips.

However, the lure of European football could be more attractive to Phillips, so a move to West Ham or Leverkusen is an option.

Phillips will have a tough time getting picked for Liverpool this season so moving could be the best for his career

Both teams play in the Europa League this season and Phillips is no stranger to German football after a time in Stuttgart in the 2019/20 season, where he played 22 games for the club.

Phillips could also look for a move as he has now got a taste of first-team football and Liverpool now have Virgil Van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip back after injuries.
