Hammers linked with Liverpool defender

West Ham have been linked with a bid for Liverpool centre-back Nat Phillips.

Sky Sports reports that there is plenty of interest in signing the defender this summer after he enjoyed something of a breakthrough season under Jurgen Klopp.

Phillips arrived from Bolton in 2016 and stepped into the first-team at times last term.

The 24-year-old made 20 appearances in all competitions, scoring in the win over Burnley and playing 180 minutes against Real Madrid in the Champions League.

And Sky reports that there is interest in signing Phillips from German club Bayer Leverkusen, as well as Brighton, Burnley, Newcastle and the Hammers.

The Irons are only said to be willing to consider a bid for the defender if another centre-back departs the club, but he appears to be on the list for David Moyes’ side.

Phillips has played in the Bundesliga before, having been loaned to Stuttgart during his development at the Anfield club.
