Liverpool have been looking to sell the centre-back in recent windows but a sale is yet to materialise, with the Reds’ asking price proving to be a big obstacle.


Phillips spent the latter half of last season on loan at Bournemouth and helped the Cherries earn promotion back to the Premier League.



The defender is down the pecking order under Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool remain open to letting him leave for the right price.


And Phillips could be handed a way out of Liverpool on a permanent basis this summer as he has attracted interest from rival top flight clubs.



Bournemouth are interested in signing Phillips again, this time on a permanent deal, while fellow top flight new boys Fulham are also keen on him.


Liverpool have put a £10m price tag on the centre-back’s head and it remains to be seen whether the likes of Bournemouth and Fulham act upon their interest and make concrete moves for him.



The Merseyside giants prefer to cash in on Phillips’ exit this summer but are also claimed to be open to loaning him out again.
