Jose Enrique has urged Newcastle United to sign Liverpool defender Nat Phillips in the January transfer window.

Newcastle have improved a lot under Eddie Howe over the last few weeks, but they’re still in a lot of trouble. The Magpies need a lot of help in the winter window, especially in the heart of their defence.

The Toon have been linked with plenty of centre-backs over the last few weeks. Phillips is one of them as well, and Enrique believes it would be a great deal for all three parties.

Most STUPID Thing YOUR Club Could Do Right NOW

Here’s what the Spaniard, who played for both Newcastle and Liverpool, said on Instagram last night.

Jose Enrique: Newcastle should sign Nat Phillips from Liverpool

In his latest Instagram post, Enrique shared a picture linking Phillips with a move away from Liverpool.

He wrote: “Nathaniel Phillips is expected to leave the club in January. Should Liverpool sell Phillips?

“For me, to be honest, I believe if we get a good price for him maybe is the best option for him and for us. And, a club that I can see him doing very well for and they need a centre back very urgent is my ex-team Newcastle.

“What you think? Newcastle and LFC fans. I believe both parties will win there.”

Phillips is available for just £10m

The Evening Standard revealed not too long ago that a fee of just £10 million could be enough for any interested club to sign the defender who Jurgen Klopp is a huge fan of.

Back in October last year, after a game against West Ham United, the Liverpool boss labelled him as ‘brilliant,’ ‘intelligent’ and a ‘monster’ in aerial duels.

Klopp said, as per BBC: “He’s a brilliant guy, smart guy, intelligent, everything. He’s not easy on the eye, he’s not Messi but who cares? In the air, he’s a monster! He was incredible. For the first game, I think everyone can imagine how nervy that must be after a long wait.”

It’s clear that Phillips has no future at Liverpool and he is almost guaranteed to leave the club in January. A move to Newcastle would really be fantastic for him and at just £10 million, he could prove to be a very smart signing by Eddie Howe if a move materialises next month.
