Some Liverpool fans on social media are far from happy after it was reported that Bayer Leverkusen have joined the race to sign Nat Phillips this summer.
Phillips has been linked with a number of clubs, and sadly, it seems as though it may just be a matter of time before he leaves Anfield.
As you can imagine, Liverpool fans aren’t best pleased with the idea of selling Phillips, and we can understand why.
Indeed, Phillips didn’t put a foot wrong last season, he finished third in the club’s Player of the Year voting and he played with his heart on his sleeve.
Phillips was arguably the Reds’ best defender last term, and what’s his reward? Being sold to another club and not given a chance to compete with the likes of Virgil van Dijk, Joe Gomez and Ibrahima Konate for a starting spot.
The Anfield faithful aren’t happy with the idea of Phillips being sold this summer, and here’s what they’ve been saying about the reports linking the defender to Leverkusen…
Be a big mistake if he does leave https://t.co/YeAsYBmLP1

I don’t think Nat should leave. Virgil just came back from an ACL, Gomez looks like his whole leg was cut open and he’s also a bit injury prone, Matip is well Matip and Konate’s injury record is also a bit funny under the light. Last season showed how quickly it can all go left. https://t.co/2O7y4LYniu

Sell Matip instead and keep Philips instead. Should be our third or fourth CB when the enviable thing of Gomez getting injured. It’s bound to happen

Knocks me sick the way we’re casting Phillips aside. Literally worked his socks off for us. Not happy https://t.co/7x5cBZZNIP

Not only did Nat save our season but his words about playing and wearing the shirt resonated with us fans. Keep him!!!
