Liverpool versatile defender Nat Phillips is attracting the interest of both Fulham and Bournemouth and could move to either newly promoted team before the transfer window closes.

That is according to BBC Sport’s Transfer Daily podcast, which claims that both teams are considering a bid for the 25-year-old defender.

Phillips spent the second half of last campaign on loan at Bournemouth, helping Scott Parker’s side to promotion in second place behind Marco Silva’s Fulham.

In the preceding months, the 25-year-old defender struggled for playing time in the the Merseyside Red’s squad, however, did impress in a 2-1 win over AC Milan at the San Siro.

The signing of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig last summer means that Phillips has to leave the club to secure regular first-team football elsewhere.

Last summer he was rumoured with moves to both PSV Eindhoven and Anderlecht, however, now seems most likely to stay in England with one of the teams aiming to stay in the English top-tier.


Fulham have already made four signings this summer, Joao Palhinha, Andreas Pereira Kevin Mbabu, Solomon and Brend Leno.

Bournemouth have been far less active in the market, signing only one player Marcus Tavernier.

Phillips has played a total of 24 games for the Merseyside Reds since joining the team back in 2016, scoring one goal.
