Liverpool January transfer plan latest as FSG ‘in talks’ over deal and ‘may seek PSG loan’

Liverpool are reportedly in negotiations to sell one of Jürgen Klopp’s first-team players.

While most expected Liverpool to have no transfer business in terms of bringing in players in the remaining days of January, there was always the option for FSG to move players.

And according to The Mail, Liverpool are in talks about the departure of defender Nat Phillips. The newspaper does not name the interested club, but it is no surprise that the central defender is on the verge of leaving the club.

He’s been on the market in the past, with the Bolton-born currently fifth-choice centre-back for Klopp. And Rhys Williams’ recall has paved the way for Liverpool to seek another sale.

Phillips has played just 65 minutes of competitive football for Liverpool this season, so the player will undoubtedly want to leave the club at the age of 25 in search of first-team football.

In addition, Liverpool and FSG could perhaps send any transfer fee they receive for Phillips to the Jude Bellingham fund, with a mega bid likely to be needed to land him in the summer.

Perhaps more intriguingly, the Mail’s report also suggests Liverpool could try to sign a player on loan over the remainder of the January transfer window. It has so far had no luck with a similar impromptu deal for Arthur Melo, but the blatant need to strengthen the core of Klopp’s side for the rest of the campaign could still prompt FSG to enter the market.

The Juventus team are apparently among those being reassessed as Liverpool weigh up loan options, although any temporary deal with them would require the termination of Arthur’s loan. Meanwhile, FSG also dominates players such as PSG and Atlético Madrid.
