West Ham United could make a transfer push for Liverpool defender Nat Phillips, according to journalist Dean Jones.

Jones confessed that West Ham United have had a “keen eye” on Phillips and they considered making a move for him this summer.
“The strongest interest I guess you could say would be West Ham and Nat Phillips,” said Jones to GIVEMESPORT.
“They’ve had a keen eye on him, they’ve had good reports on him and they considered going for him strongly in the summer window. So I can see that one coming around again.”

Phillips would be a solid player to bring into the fold at the London Stadium, he’s been a great asset for Klopp to have at Anfield.
The defender is physically menacing and has proven he is capable of playing in the Premier League for a top side.
Partnered with Kurt Zouma, the Hammers could have their centre-back pairing sorted for the next few years.
Moyes also needs to strengthen his defensive options with Angelo Ogbanna and Craig Dawson both on the tail ends of their careers.
Thilo Kehrer and Nayef Aguerd came in this summer and Phillips could follow suit in the club’s new method of bringing younger players into the team.
Phillips would be given plenty of opportunities at the Irons and the move seems like one that would suit all parties involved.
West Ham could do a lot worse than this one, if they can secure him on the cheap, it seems like a no-brainer.
