Liverpool: Bournemouth make Nat Phillips approach

Liverpool: Bournemouth make Nat Phillips approach -Liverpool News

Bournemouth are interested in signing Liverpool centre-back Nat Phillips on loan for the 2022/23 season, according to Sky Sports reporter Mark McAdam.

The Lowdown: Phillips out of favour

The Englishman spent a chunk of last season with the Cherries, helping them secure a return to the Premier League after a successful loan spell.

Phillips is now back at Liverpool for the summer but it is clear that he has no immediate future at the club, given there at least four centre-backs ahead of him in the pecking order – Virgil van Dijk, Ibrahima Konate, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez.

A move away makes sense for all parties and it looks as though a return to Bournemouth could be on the cards.

The Latest: Bournemouth eye up return

With Sadio Mane on the brink of sealing a move to Bayern Munich, the Sky presenter shared more exit news from Anfield.

Taking to Twitter, McAdam revealed that the Cherries are eyeing up a second temporary move for the 25-year-old, with the player himself keen:

“Breaking: Bournemouth have made an approach to Liverpool about taking Nat Phillips on loan for the season, Liverpool are currently weighing up the offer. Phillips keen to join once again after enjoying his loan spell at the club last season.”

The Verdict: Should be permanent

It makes complete sense for Phillips to head off again this summer and Bournemouth looks an ideal destination, considering they are back in the top flight and he already knows the club well.

While a loan move wouldn’t be the end of the world though, it would surely be preferable for Liverpool to sell him permanently now, in order to get a good fee for his services.

It is clear that Phillips isn’t going to be an important figure again for the Reds, barring another freak injury situation, and it would be beneficial for all parties for him to find a new club for good and settle down there, banking Liverpool a decent fee in the process.
