2 new contracts, a loan & Phillips bids expected – Latest Liverpool FC News

Liverpool have concluded their pre-season schedule with all eyes now turning to the trip to Fulham on Saturday, while two new contracts have been signed and a loan move confirmed.


Bids expected for Phillips

Nat Phillips played just 87 minutes for Liverpool throughout pre-season and there have been questions over whether the club would keep him as extra cover or find him a new home.

The 25-year-old has spoken readily of his desire to play consistently and he could yet find that this summer, with Liverpool “anticipating bids” for the centre-back this week.

According to Goal’s Neil Jones, Fulham and Bournemouth are both interested suitors, the latter of whom Phillips spent time on loan with during the second half of last season.

Liverpool value Phillips in the region of £10 million, a figure no club has yet to come to the table with but that could soon change.

There is not only Premier League interest, with “at least two” Serie A clubs also monitoring the situation.

A permanent deal is the Reds’ preferred route, which would allow Phillips to lay down some roots in a senior environment for more than just one season.

One to watch this week!
