West Ham United to land Liverpool defender?
Liverpool defender Nathaniel Phillips has been earmarked as a potential winter target for West Ham United.
The 24-year-old excelled for the Merseyside giants against AC Milan on Tuesday night. It was his first start of the campaign.
Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for him after the game, but the German will still consider his departure in the next transfer window.
According to Evening Standard, the Hammers are ready to make an approach for Phillips after injuries to Angelo Ogbonna and Kurt Zouma.
Phillips was in exceptional form for the Reds during the back end of last season as they qualified for the Champions League.
He provided cover for injuries to Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez, but all of them are now available for selection.
The Reds have also added Ibrahima Konate to their central defensive ranks, and Phillips appears likely to move in January.
Newcastle United have also been linked with the £15 million-rated man.
