West Ham fans react to links with Nat Phillips

West Ham United have been linked with a move for Liverpool defender Nat Phillips.

The 24-year-old made quite an impression with the Reds last year and could prove to be a useful option at the back for the Hammers.

Liverpool had a major injury crisis last year and had to rely on fringe players like Phillips and Rhys Williams to get them through the season.

Phillips produced several assured displays during the second half of the season and was instrumental in their push for the top-four finish.

West Ham could certainly use more defensive depth, and the Liverpool player would be an inexpensive option.

The London club are playing in the Europa League this season and need to strengthen their squad to cope with the extra workload.

The Reds signed Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig earlier this summer, and Phillips will struggle to get game time next season.

He needs to leave the club for the sake of his career, and West Ham could be a superb move for him.

The Liverpool defender has a no-nonsense style of defending, and his aerial prowess could be invaluable for the Hammers.

Some West Ham fans took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the potential signing – here is what they had to say.
