West Ham United could well make a move for Liverpool defender Nat Phillips.
What’s the word?
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT on Phillips’ potential departure from Liverpool, insider Jones said: “The strongest interest I guess you could say would be West Ham and Nat Phillips.
“They’ve had a keen eye on him, they’ve had good reports on him and they considered going for him strongly in the summer window. So I can see that one coming around again.”
The signing of Phillips would no doubt bolster the Hammers’ backline and at 25-years-old, seeking regular minutes, he will feel as though he has a point to prove, having been cast aside by Jurgen Klopp for the most part.
West Ham are not in desperate need of a defender, and the side have proven themselves as solid in that department, ranking as the fourth-best defence in the Premier League, having conceded just three goals more than Manchester City, making for a total of 17 conceded across the first half of the season.
The signing of Phillips would no doubt serve as a welcome depth option, but this is by no means a move that the club will be prioritising as we venture towards to January transfer window.
