Brighton Are Planning A Bid For Liverpools Nat Phillips As A Ps15m Rated Defender To Replace Ben White

Brighton & Hove Albion are apparently planning a move for Liverpool defender Nat Phillips, who the Seagulls see as a replacement for Arsenal’s Ben White.
White, a member of England’s Euro 2020 team, is likely to join Arsenal after the Gunners signed a PS50 million agreement with Premier League rivals Brighton last week for his talents.
The former Leeds loanee shone with Lewis Dunk and Adam Webster in a back three, but his impending departure means the Seagulls are on the lookout for a new star to fill the vacuum left by the England international.
Brighton are apparently plotting a summer move for Liverpool defender Nat Phillips, according to talkSPORT. Brighton are contemplating a PS15 million raid on Liverpool for defender Phillips, according to talkSPORT.
The Liverpool club has informed the 24-year-old that he is free to leave Merseyside this summer if a club can provide him regular first-team playing.
Phillips’ chances of making an impact in the first team under Jurgen Klopp appear to be restricted after filling in during Liverpool’s defensive problems last season.
Phillips, 24, has impressed for Liverpool but has dropped down the pecking order at Anfield Despite Liverpool failing to defend their Premier League title due to a leaky defence and an uncharacteristically dull attack, Phillips impressed for Klopp’s side across 20 appearances for the club.
Phillips, though, is low down the pecking order at Anfield, with the likes of Joe Gomez, Joel Matip, and Virgil van Dijk likely to return soon, as well as the addition of Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig.
Phillips had been linked with a move to Sean Dyche’s Burnley, but it appears that he has also piqued the interest of Brighton manager Graham Potter.
Graham Potter, the Brighton manager, sees the PS15 million man as a viable alternative for White. Last month, the Englishman said that he needs game time at this juncture of his career.
‘Every player wants to play games, and I need to play games for my growth at this time,’ he told Goal.
‘I think there was progression from my first game last season to my last, and I felt a lot more secure and comfortable.’
I’d like to continue in that direction.
‘When it comes to Liverpool, they certainly play a lot of games each year.
Game time is never guaranteed for anyone, but I suppose it would depend on if there is enough opportunity for me within those games.’
