West Ham to make shock move to sign and sign one of Klopps men!
West Ham could make a move for Liverpool defender Nat Phillips, as a possible replacement for Craig Dawson – according to journalist Dean Jones.
The veteran centre-back, who is out of contract at the end of the season, has made just five starts this season after struggling with injury and it has been claimed that he will be leaving the Hammers in the coming transfer windows
And it has been claimed that new Aston Villa boss Unai Emery will be in the market for an experienced central defender as he looks to get the club higher up the Premier League – and solve their defensive issues
The Hammers have been linked with numerous players over the past few weeks – and now it seems that they are looking to raid Liverpool for Nat Phillips – if you believe the reports
Currently, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip, Ibrahima Konate and Joe Gomez to pick from when assembling his central defence – meaning that Phillips is not getting the game time that he would like.
Now – amid all the speculation – Journlaist Dean Jones has claimed that West Ham are now interested in the gifted young defender.
Speaking to GIVEMESPORT Jones said: “The strongest interest I guess you could say would be West Ham and Nat Phillips.
“They’ve had a keen eye on him, they’ve had good reports on him and they considered going for him strongly in the summer window.
“So I can see that one coming around again.”
Despite all the quality that Liverpool already have ahead of Phillips – we would be shocked to see Klopp let him leave the club – he really rates the lad.
So even though the Hammers could give him more game time than he is currently getting – we would be shocked to see this deal get done
