Report: Liverpool approached by Premier League club, they want 'terrific' Reds 24-year-old

Liverpool are willing to let Nathaniel Phillips leave Anfield this summer, according to reports.

And a Premier League club appears to have already made an approach.

According to The Telegraph, Burnley have approached Liverpool over Phillips.

The Clarets haven’t made a bid at this stage, added the outlet.

However, their interest apparently remains despite also moving for Stoke City’s Nathan Collins.

The Merseyside club are reportedly willing to listen to offers for an initial £10m.

In addition, further add-ons could take the full asking price towards £15m.

“Reluctant sellers”

Liverpool are reportedly willing to grant Phillips a transfer away from Anfield this summer.

Likewise, the Reds defender is open to leaving Merseyside in search of first-team football, according to Goal.com.

Liverpool would apparently be reluctant sellers, with Jurgen Klopp a big fan of Phillips.

And Reds supporters have taken to the defender, who made 20 appearances in all competitions last season.

However, Phillips could find first-team opportunities limited at Anfield next term.

Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Joel Matip are close to returning from long-term injury.

Meanwhile, Ibrahima Konate is joining Liverpool from RB Leipzig in a £36million deal.

Liverpool ace “deserves a contract”

Anfield legend John Aldridge praised Phillips just a few weeks ago, calling for him to get a new Reds deal.

“I think Phillips deserves a contract at Liverpool,” Aldridge wrote in the Echo.

“He knows that he might only be a squad player, probably, but there will be good game time for him and he deserves it.

“Who knows in the future what’s going to happen with him, but he’s been terrific.

“In a normal season it wouldn’t happened for him. In the first couple of games he made one or two errors, you don’t normally get a second chance.

“But because the manager had no choice but to stick with him, he got better and better and better. In both boxes he’s a massive force, he doesn’t miss a header.

“You could call on him alongside Van Dijk in most games, so it’s worked out well and I’m delighted for him.”
