Liverpool have snubbed a £7 million bid for Nat Phillips from an unnamed Premier League club, reports Sky Sports.

The Reds will allow Phillips to depart Anfield this month.

Although he is highly rated, the centre-back is fifth choice in the pecking order. He's admitted that Jurgen Klopp's side will grant him an exit if it's the right move for both parties.

Liverpool are said have slapped a £15 million price tag on Phillips' head.

And they're sticking to their guns after rebuffing an offer less than half of that figure from a rival top-flight side.

Newcastle United and West Ham have both been linked in recent months.

Lewandowski dreams of Prem move

Robert Lewandowski is still dreaming of a move to the Premier League.

The striker has plundered a staggering 30 goals in just 25 games for Bayern Munich this season.

Unsurprisingly, the Bundesliga champions want to tie down Lewandowski's future, with his contract expiring in 2023.

According to Sky Sports Germany reporter Marc Behrenbeck, Lewandowski still holds aspirations of one final big transfer before he retired.

He said: “Robert Lewandowski really wants to have this one big move, to Spain or the Premier League, so Lewandowski and his agent will try to get this move in the summer.

“At the moment, they [Bayern Munich] want to extend his contract. But Lewandowski is dreaming of Spain and the Premier League.”

Swap deal with Barca

Now, according to El Nacional, the Liverpool midfielder could head to the Nou Camp this winter - with Ousmane Dembele heading in the opposite direction.

Keita has 18 months remaining on his current Anfield deal and has struggled for consistency this season due to injuries. In fact, that's pretty much been the story of his career on Merseyside since joining from RB Leipzig in 2018 for £52 million.

Dembele, meanwhile, is running into the final six months of his Barca contract and yet to sign fresh terms.

Klopp has been a long-term admirer of the winger, having tried to sign him in 2017 before he picked Borussia Dortmund.

Keita is currently away at the African Cup of Nations with Guinea.
