Newcastle United: Toon interested in Nat Phillips swoop - Newcastle United

Newcastle United are interested in swooping for Liverpool defender Nat Phillips, as reported by The Sun.

The Lowdown: Newcastle gear up for the 2021/22 season

As Steve Bruce refines his squad ahead of 2021/22, much intrigue will surround how the Magpies plan to build on their 12th place finish in the Premier League last season [BBC].

As of recently, Newcastle United have been linked with the likes of Kristoffer Ajer and Marc Guehi respectively, as they look to strengthen their depth in central defence.

However, they now seem to have turned their attention towards the 24-year-old as they look towards the new campaign.

The Latest: Magpies interested in Phillips swoop; may cost around £10 million

Presently, the Geordies are said to be courting Phillips in a deal that could total around £10 million [Sun]. This has become common knowledge after journalist Alan Nixon signified that the North East giants would have around £50 million to spend this summer on transfers [Sun].

In recent times, Burnley have also been accredited with keeping an eye on the 6ft 3in stopper [Lancashire Live]. Previously, Swansea City came close to signing the Reds defender on loan [Football League World].

The Verdict: Phillips would be a very astute prospective signing for Newcastle United

Without doubt, Phillips would be a welcome addition to the fold at Newcastle United. Coming out of nowhere due to a mass injury crisis for The Reds, he made 20 appearances in 2020/21 as he helped Liverpool to UEFA Champions League qualification [Transfermarkt].

Once labelled “brilliant” by manager Jurgen Klopp [Liverpool FC], the Englishman showed his domineering nature last year winning 5.6 aerial duels on average per game for Liverpool [WhoScored], the highest successful aerial tussle rate of anyone in the entire Reds’ squad [WhoScored].

Fitting the Steve Bruce philosophy, there is every chance that the Englishman could be a rousing success on Tyneside due to his aggressive nature and likeability as a player. Newcastle United should be pushing the boat out to acquire Phillips ahead of the new campaign.
