Brighton are said to be leading the race for the central defender but Newcastle were also said to be keeping an eye on his situation.

Liverpool are reported to want around £15million for him and with Brighton potentially losing Ben White to Arsenal, Phillips would be a great replacement for the Seagulls.

However, Brighton are not the only club who have registered interest in Phillips though.

According to James Pearce from The Athletic, two new clubs are shown their interest in the 24-year-old. 

Pearce says that German side Bayer Leverkusen and West Ham are the latest sides to show an interest in Nat.

It seems like Phillips will be leaving Anfield this summer as he can probably get starting time for other Premier League clubs and at Liverpool he will be fifth choice nex season.

Whatever happens, Phillips will leave Liverpool after gaining the fans appreciation and he'll always have his place in Liverpool's history.
