Liverpool are reportedly close to agreeing a deal with fellow Premier League outfit Burnley for defender Nat Phillips.
This news comes relatively quickly after Goal journalist Neil Jones reported Burnley, Brighton, Newcastle and Southampton are all keeping tabs on Phillips this summer.
After winning Liverpool’s Player of the Month award for April, Jurgen Klopp described the centre-half as ‘brilliant’ and said that plaudits are ‘well deserved’ after helping the Reds stabilise following a series of unfortunate injuries.
Phillips helped the Reds keep seven clean sheets in 2020/21, but may struggle to get regular game-time next term.
With the signing of Ibrahima Konate, the 24-year-old will likely be fifth-choice at Anfield when the Premier League kicks-off again in August.
Interest from the likes of Burnley comes as no surprise after an impressive season in the country’s top flight.
