Liverpool Manager Jurgen Klopp Agrees To Two Transfers Before Deadline Day, In The Same Position

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is ready to let central defenders Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams leave the club ahead of Monday's transfer deadline.

The Reds signed Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig in the summer and it's seen Phillips' playing time decrease massively.

Last season saw Liverpool rocked by injuries in defence, with Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez missing a massive chunk of the season.

Phillips has featured in just three games this campaign and the Independent report he's looking for a move away.

Liverpool are believed to have turned down a £7 million bid from Watford and West Ham United have also registered their interest.

Williams has spent the first part of this season on loan at Championship outfit Swansea City, but only featured in five games before being recalled.

Both players featured regularly last year as Joel Matip was also out for an extended period.

Despite being thrown in at the deep end, both academy graduates gave a good account of themselves.

Phillips admitted in an interview with Sky Sports that his lack of game time is becoming an issue.

He explained: "It's been tough because the competition to get in this team is fierce.

"The manager and I agree that the best thing for me is to play as many games as possible. I think you saw last year I developed well.

"I'm going to see what comes along [in January] and go from there.

"I think at this moment in time it's unlikely that I'll be playing lots of games for Liverpool, so if an opportunity arises where I get the chance to do that somewhere else and it suits everyone then it's certainly something I'd be interested in."

He'll always have THAT game at the San Siro against AC Milan however. Still an incredible turn.

Young full-back Neco Williams could depart as he's unlikely to dislodge Trent Alexander-Arnold in the team.

Liverpool aren't expected to make any signings in January despite being linked to Porto forward Luis Diaz.

Klopp's side are currently second in the Premier League and 11 points behind leaders Manchester City.
