The report further adds that if the 25-year-old does decide to leave Elland Park, he would prefer a move to Anfield.
ANFIELD WATCH VERDICT
We would love to see Liverpool sign Phillips. The midfielder can seriously play.
Phillips averaged a WhoScored player rating of 7.01 across the 2020-21 Premier League campaign.
The Reds are yet to replace Gini Wijnaldum. The Dutchman departed Liverpool and joined Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer during the summer.
Phillips would be a decent replacement for Wijnaldum. The Englishman is young, talented and plays in a similar position to Wijnaldum.
There is a lot to like about Phillips. But, only time will tell if Liverpool are genuinely interested in signing the midfielder.
