Shock Milan midfielder links & Bundesliga beckons for Phillips – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool are preparing for their second pre-season friendly…well, day of friendlies anyway, and perhaps their second signing of the summer too, if rumours can be believed.


Phillips back to Bundesliga?

Nat Phillips is available for a summer transfer if the money is right, we’re told.

Perhaps it shouldn’t be a surprise, then, that there are links with a move back to Germany – where he enjoyed a fairly productive loan stint two years ago, albeit in the second tier then.

Bayer Leverkusen are the club reported to be in contact with Phillips’ representatives and fuel is added to rumour fires by the fact he didn’t play in the Reds’ opening pre-season games.

Brighton are also still keen though, so it remains to be seen if he’s playing at home or abroad once more this term.

Meanwhile, Conor Bradley is hoping to keep impressing enough to be Trent’s back-up at right-back this season – if Neco Williams makes a move elsewhere in search of more regular action.
