West Ham will be able to sign Nat Phillips from Liverpool in the January transfer window according to reports.

There is one non-negotiable though. The Sun claims that Liverpool will only sell him on a permanent basis rather loan him out and his price-tag stands at £10 million.

Hammers boss David Moyes is well-known to be on the look-out for a top-class centre-half following the long-term injuries sustained by Angelo Ogbonna and Kurt Zouma.

Quite who the Scot will bring to the London Stadium remains to be seen though.

Liverpool ace Nat Phillips would be a very smart January transfer window addition.

Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is allegedly ready to let the 24-year-old defender leave Anfield. And he could be London Stadium bound.

Liverpool tell West Ham Nat Phillips price

According to a report from The Sun, the Merseyside outfit are prepared to sell the towering centre-half for £10 million in January.

That seems like very good value for West Ham.

Signing the Liverpool man for that kind of fee seems like an absolute no-brainer for the Hammers.

The 24-year-old dominated the West Ham attack both times we played Liverpool last season.

So Moyes and the Hammers fans will know all about the Reds defender.

Standing at 6ft 3in tall, Phillips is dominant in the air. He is a tenacious tackler and his playing style is a real throwback to years gone by.

He has been described as a dominant defender by Liverpool’s own website.

The Liverpool man would suit West Ham down to the ground.

The Hammers have a big decision to make though. Phillips is currently out injured and isn’t expected to be back in action until next month (The Evening Standard).

Moyes really needs a central defender to come into the London Stadium and hit the ground running in January.

Phillips is a top-class central defender. Whether he’s the man for the job at West Ham is another matter though.

Perhaps the Hammers would be better served by signing a player who is 100 per cent fit.
