Liverpool clue could clear the path for West Ham to make their first signing of the January transfer window.

West Ham are said to be seriously eyeing up a move to sign Liverpool centre-back Nat Phillips in the January transfer window as first reported by the likes of The Evening Standard.

Last week David Moyes insisted the imminent return of Kurt Zouma does not change his plans to bring a centre-back to West Ham this month.

WAYNE ROONEY TO EVERTON IS A JOKE.

The Scot lost Angelo Ogbonna for the season to an ACL injury and pointed to that blow as reason enough to bring a new signing to the London Stadium.

Last month Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp admitted he will let West Ham target Phillips leave in January and does not expect a cheekbone injury to block a move.

The Mirror claimed Liverpool would listen to offers of around £12 million for Phillips.

Other clubs are interested in the 24-year-old but Moyes is said to be close friends with the player’s dad.

“His return would pave the way for fellow-defender Nat Phillips to depart Anfield this month, with the 24-year-old attracting interest from a host of clubs…” The Daily Mail reports.

“The Reds instead want to receive a straight £15million sale in January, which they feel is a fair valuation.

“West Ham are reportedly long-term admirers of Phillips, yet David Moyes is said to be targeting a defender who can also provide cover at left-back this month.”
