Jurgen Klopp will let AC Milan and West Ham target leave


Jurgen Klopp has confirmed Liverpool will not stand in Nat Phillips' way of leaving the club in January

Phillips was a standout performer for the Reds when they ran out 2-1 winners over AC Milan at the San Siro on Tuesday, but suffered a fractured cheekbone in the game which will see him sidelined for a number of weeks.

Making his first start of the season in Italy, the return of Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez from injury along with the £36m arrival of Ibrahima Konate has seen the 24-year-old fall back down the Anfield pecking order after impressing last season.

According to what is being reported by journalist
Ekrem Konur , Milan and West Ham United are closely monitoring Phillips' situation at Liverpool, with the Englishman tagged to a €12m asking price.

Revealing Liverpool have no intention of blocking any exit as things stand, Jurgen  Klopp reassured any interested sides that they wouldn't be put off making a potential move for Phillips in January.

"I'm very happy that Nat is here, to be honest, but we will not block anything I think," the German told reporters. "It’s not the plan at all but who knows what happens until January.

"It's not the luckiest moment for this but by the end of January he will be completely fine, definitely. Probably in the middle of January, I don’t know exactly.

"We will see everything will be completely fine. It’s not complicated, it’s just not cool.

"We will see what it does mean exactly but in the long term it’s no problem because everything will be fine for Nat, definitely."
