When addressing a question over the continuing links between Watford and Liverpool’s Nathaniel Phillips, Claudio Ranieri remained coy on the possibility of a move for the 24-year-old.

With the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez, Ibrahima Konat and Joel Matip ahead of him competing for spaces in the first-XI, few could begrudge the Englishman for looking for more regular minutes elsewhere.
