As the winter transfer window comes closer and closer West Ham are being linked with more and more potential transfers.
The England international joined Liverpool from Bolton Wanderers on a free transfer in August 2016. His contract expires in the summer of 2025.
In 23 appearances for Liverpool, Phillips has managed to score one goal, and create one goal for his teammates.
He’s incredibly experienced for a 24-year-old and still has tons of room for growth.
Nat Phillips is one of the more likely players to be offloaded by Liverpool this winter and the list of suitors in the England international continues to grow. He is widely regarded as a key transfer target for West Ham this winter.
David Moyes is a firm fan of Liverpool centre-back and West Ham could make a move for the player if the financial aspect makes sense.
The former Bolton Wanderers man heavily relies on his ability to read the game. It is coupled with his sensible tackling and an excellent sense of positioning, allowing him to repel most of the danger in the defensive third. His arrival would give West Ham some much needed tactical flexibility.
According to the report, “West Ham United are lining up a move for Liverpool defender Nat Phillips. Despite signing a new contract in the summer, Phillips has made just two appearances for the Reds this season. According to Football Insider, the Hammers are putting things in place to sign Phillips when the transfer window opens in January. Phillips made a big impact on Jurgen Klopp’s team last season after a spate of injuries left them with a dearth of centre-backs. It is believed Liverpool would accept an offer of around £12m to sign the 24-year-old.”
