Liverpool’s Nat Phillips wanted by Premier League and Serie A clubs this month – The Athletic

Liverpool defender Nat Phillips is attracting plenty of interest from both Premier League and Serie A clubs.

The Athletic understands that Liverpool, who are open to selling the Bolton-born centre-back, have already rejected a bid of £7 million from an unnamed top-flight club.

Sporting director Michael Edwards believes they can command more than double that figure with the asking price set at £15 million.

Liverpool point to the fact that it’s a similar amount to what Burnley paid for Stoke City’s Nathan Collins with add-ons last summer.

The interest in Phillips from Italy was triggered by his outstanding display against AC Milan in the Champions League last month. He suffered a fractured cheekbone during that game but the damage is now close to being fully healed.

The 24-year-old has had to avoid contact but he’s been able to maintain his fitness levels by taking part in all other facets of training and his spell on the sidelines hasn’t put anyone off.

A host of Premier League clubs, including Aston Villa, Newcastle United, Watford and West Ham United, are in the market for a centre-back this month so Liverpool are prepared to bide their time in order to get the best possible deal.

Phillips, who has four years left on his contract having penned an extension earlier in the season, is open to a move in order to secure more regular game time and will consider his options.
