Liverpool’s long-awaited transfer is now within reach after the first offer was made, and Fabrizio Romano has shared a major update…



Liverpool transfer finally nearing completion following initial bid.


Liverpool transfer moves closer as Fabrizio Romano provides important update.


The much-anticipated transfer to Liverpool seems to be on the verge of completion after the first offer was made and Fabrizio Romano provided a significant update.


A long-awaited transfer to Liverpool appears to be on the brink of happening this window following a string of positive developments.


Liverpool has been known for their adeptness in the transfer market in recent years, but they have shown a concerning trend of letting valuable players leave without recouping fees, as seen with the departures of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Naby Keita, and Roberto Firmino last summer.


Joel Matip and Thiago Alcantara have also been retained for the final year of their contracts, departing Liverpool on June 30 without any transfer fee.


Additionally, the trio of Trent Alexander-Arnold, Virgil van Dijk, and Mohamed Salah are now in the last 12 months of their agreements.


Losing any of these key players to free agency would be a significant blow for the club.


Another player in the final year of his contract is center-back Nat Phillips, who has mainly played for Liverpool during injury crises. The club has been willing to sell the 27-year-old for some time.


Phillips completed loan spells at Celtic and Cardiff City last season before returning to Merseyside recently, where his potential sale has taken precedence.


Liverpool is aiming to secure £8m as a transfer to Turkey appears imminent.


Liverpool is looking to recover approximately £8m from Phillips’ departure.


Ipswich Town and Mainz from Germany have shown interest, but according to Fabrizio Romano, a move to Trabzonspor is currently being negotiated.


Trabzonspor finished third in the Super Lig last season and were runners-up to Besiktas in the Turkish cup. According to Romano, a move to the high-performing Turkish team is now a realistic option.


Romano informed his Playback channel, “There is a concrete possibility of Nathaniel Phillips joining Trabzonspor.”


“Yes, Trabzonspor is in negotiations for Phillips, it’s a concrete possibility… we are waiting for the player to make a decision as well.”


A subsequent report from Turkey indicated that Trabzonspor’s initial offer was turned down.


The exact amount of the bid was not disclosed, but it was mentioned that it fell below €5m/£4.25m.


Liverpool will be looking for Trabzonspor to come back with a more appealing second offer.


Alternatively, they will hope that Trabzonspor’s interest will encourage other potential buyers to make their own offers.


Phillips has rarely made mistakes when given the chance to play for Liverpool, but with only 19 league appearances in the past five years, it is evident that he is not a key part of their plans.


The Reds have made several attempts in the past to sell Phillips. A steep asking price of £15m had deterred potential buyers, and injuries to key Liverpool center-backs had also caused the club to cancel possible transfers.


However, with only one season remaining on his contract, the opportunity to sell Phillips and give him the chance to play regularly at another club is currently ideal.
