Liverpool are going to sell a number of players this summer. The Reds always sell-to-buy and this window should be no different. According to The Athletic, Brighton are set to step up their efforts to sign Nat Phillips.
The Bolton Baresi
Last October we saw Virgil van Dijk rupture his ACL due to a horror tackle by Jordan Pickford.
The Everton goalkeeper flew out at the Dutchman’s knees in a reckless display.
Then Joe Gomez was also ruled out for the season after picking up a knee injury of his own.
Players dropped like flies, giving Nat Phillips an unexpected chance in the side.
The Lancashire lad became known as the Bolton Baresi for his commanding defensive performances.
If it wasn’t for the nearly departed centre back we wouldn’t have finished in the top four, he’ll be a Kop hero forever for that.
Brighton move for Nat Phillips
There is set to be plenty of interest in the defender this summer.
He understandably wants first team football and the Reds’ will be reluctant sellers.
According to The Athletic, Brighton are set to move for Nat Phillips.
The Seasiders are said to be stepping up their efforts now that Ben White has agreed to a £50m move to Arsenal.
Graham Potter will need a replacement for the North London bound centre back – who better than the best defender in the world?
What RTK has to say
Liverpool selling Nat Phillips will be vital for raising funds for incoming signings.
He’s an incredible option at the back but we need the money and he would likely be fifth choice this term.
Brighton would be an excellent place for him to showcase his talents.
