Liverpool have moved on mountains of fringe players this summer. The Reds have cashed in on deadwood and loaned out promising youngsters and there is still business to be done. According to The Athletic, Liverpool are likely to sell Nat Phillips on transfer deadline day.
Rise and rise of the Bolton Baresi
Last season the Reds were in dire straits.
Liverpool lost scores of players to the treatment table with the centre of defence completely decimated.
We were going through centre backs like tissues with players dropping like flies.
The Reds had quickly turned to Nat Phillips just weeks after his move to Swansea City collapsed.
The centre back went on to become a vital member of the side, starting 15 times in the Premier League and three times in the European Cup.
Phillips’ aerial ability and defensive prowess earned him the nickname the ‘Bolton Baresi’.
Liverpool to sell Nat Phillips on transfer deadline day
The Reds have moved on a number of players this season.
Jürgen Klopp has only had the one player added despite the raft of exits.
We could see further business done before the window closes.
The Athletic has claimed Liverpool are expected to sell Nat Phillips on transfer deadline day.
The Reds are allegedly looking for around £12m for the cult hero.
What RTK has to say
It’ll be sad to see Phillips go but he deserves his exit.
He is too good to be sitting on the bench every week and he’s behind four players in the pecking order.
Fingers crossed we’ll still hear fans singing about Nat Phillips in the air when he returns to Anfield with his new club.
