A series of updates surrounding the efforts of Premier League outfit Liverpool on the transfer front have surfaced online on Thursday.

Bayer bound?

The first centers on a potential departure from Anfield over the weeks ahead.

The player in question? Nathaniel Phillips.

Central defender Phillips was of course thrust into the limelight on the red half of Merseyside last season. This came with Jurgen Klopp having been left with little choice but to make use of his less favoured options at the back, amid something of an injury crisis.

Phillips, though, to his credit, went on to take full advantage of the opportunity afforded to him, impressing in a leader’s role at the heart of the Reds’ backline.

With Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez both closing on full fitness, and Ibrahima Konate having further reinforced the defensive options at Anfield already this summer, however, Phillips’ future remains altogether up in the air.

And one club seemingly keen on taking advantage of this situation, according to reports, are Bayer Leverkusen.

According to Sky Sports, the Bundesliga outfit have ‘sounded out’ the possibility of luring the 24-year-old – who previously impressed during a loan stint with Stuttgart – back to Germany.

Also keen on Phillips, meanwhile, are all of Brighton, Burnley, Newcastle and West Ham.
