Liverpool centre-back Nat Phillips emerges as a transfer target for Bayer Leverkusen, according to a report.

Bayer Leverkusen have reportedly expressed an interest in signing Liverpool centre-back Nat Phillips during this summer's transfer window.

The 24-year-old impressed for the Reds in the latter stages of last season but could struggle for action in 2021-22 due to the return of Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez from injury.

Ibrahima Konate's arrival from RB Leipzig has also seemingly pushed Phillips further down the pecking order, and a number of Premier League clubs have been credited with an interest.

Brighton & Hove Albion, Burnley, Newcastle United and West Ham United are all thought to be keen on the centre-back's signature in the current market.

However, according to Sky Sports News, Leverkusen are firmly in the hunt for the Englishman, who represented German outfit Stuttgart on loan during the 2019-20 campaign.

Phillips - contracted to Jurgen Klopp's side until June 2023 - scored once and registered one assist in 20 appearances for Liverpool during the 2020-21 season.
