Former Tottenham player, Paul Stewart has claimed that he would not say no to a £10m move for Liverpool defender Nathaniel Phillips this summer.
Phillips was drafted into a makeshift Liverpool defence last season as the Reds were struggling with injury troubles at the back to the likes of Joe Gomez and Virgil Van Dijk.
The inexperienced defender ended up playing 17 Premier League games and three Champions League matches for Liverpool, even scoring one and assisting one (TransferMarkt).
The Athletic have claimed that Spurs may look to sign two new central defenders this summer as they look to bolster their own ranks ahead of the new campaign.
The Sun have reported that Liverpool may be willing to sell Phillips this summer but only if a bid of around £10m comes in for the no-nonsense centre-half.
Stewart has claimed that he wouldn’t say no to that price as Tottenham’s back four is not good enough at the moment.
He said: “I wouldn’t say no to him at Spurs. The back four is just not good enough. At 10 million, he may just be an option.”
Spurs Web Opinion:
This is one of the worst takes I have ever seen! Phillips did great in that Liverpool defence and I think he has earned a move to a lower Premier League side, but arguing that he could come in and improve the Spurs back four is lunacy.
