Liverpool have become champions of everything in the past year and a bit. The Reds have conquered England, Europe and the world under Jürgen Klopp. The lads have done this in part due to the consistency in team selection, this makes it extremely difficult to get into the Liverpool side. As such some players have to be moved on, Liverpool could sell Nat Phillips before deadline day according to reports.
Nat Phillips at Liverpool
Towering centre back Nat Phillips joined Liverpool from Bolton Wanderers before the 2016-17 season.
The defender struggled with injury the following season but was eventually made captain of the U23s side.
An impressive pre-season in 2018-19 could have seen him afforded first team opportunities but an ankle injury put paid to those ideas.
Stuttgart took the youngster on loan for the season last term, Kopites will remember that he was recalled for just one game before being sent back to Germany – the Merseyside Derby in January.

Liverpool could sell Nat Phillips
According to the Liverpool ECHO, Liverpool could sell Nat Phillips before Friday’s domestic transfer deadline.
Bristol City are said to be the forerunners for the defender’s signature.
There is also reported interest from Swansea City, Reading and Nottingham Forest.
Although he could make a temporary move, a permanent sale is far from off the table.
What RTK has to say
This move would make sense for all involved.
If Liverpool do sell Nat Phillips then he will be likely getting regular first team football somewhere, something he desperately needs at 23-years-old.
He will also have a sense of stability, not having to be shipped out on loan, he’ll be able to make a home and figure out his game better without chopping and changing each season.
Fingers crossed this one goes through, we wish him all the best.
