Several Liverpool fans on Twitter have suggested that the club ought to sell Nat Phillips and bring back Ozan Kabak from Schalke this summer.
Kabak signed for Liverpool on a short-term loan deal in the January transfer window, initially appearing in the starting XI before being displaced towards the latter stages of the campaign.
Nat Phillips, alongside Rhys Williams, held down the fort during Liverpool’s top four run-in, and what a cracking job they did.
However, football is a fickle game, and the fans have notoriously short memories. That has, unfortunately, cost Nat Phillips here, with some Reds fans on Twitter wanting him replaced.
Ozan Kabak could be available for significantly less money. With player’s lack of appearances for Turkey at the EURO’s having ruined Schalke’s plans. They can’t afford to pay his wages so they need to sell him, and now they’ll have to do it for a bargain price. [Der Westen – ??] pic.twitter.com/1RO15rJV0H

Some Liverpool fans in the replies have revealed their openness to the idea that Kabak would be signed to replace Phillips, even though the big centre-back was exemplary last term.
Some ‘thanks’ this is for all his contributions…
Sell Nat, get Kabak in. Who says no?

This could be why we didn’t make it permanent as if he going to be less then 18 mill then it is even more of a bargain and apparently if Nat is to leave we want 15 mill then we buy kabak Id be happy he’ll be a top defender in a few years I reckon

This smells of an Edwards coup/deal…..sell Nat for £15
million and buy Kabak for a pittance..hmmm ??

With Phillips possibly leaving we could get him in for less than what we’ll get for Nat.

We will sign him now because Phillips will be sold and we will use that money to sign him
