Nottingham Forest, Bristol City and Middlesbrough are hoping to sign Liverpool’s Nathaniel Phillips on loan before the transfer window closes, according to Goal.
The 23-year-old looks set to depart Anfield before the end of the transfer window, and if English clubs wish to sign him, then they have until the 16th of October to do so.
Phillips spent last season on loan in Germany with Stuttgart, making 22 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit and gaining valuable first-team experience.

Another loan move now looks to be in the offing for the defender, who has made only one senior appearance for Liverpool during his time at Anfield.
According to Goal, Nottingham Forest, Bristol City and Middlesbrough are interested in signing Phillips.
Forest have been the most active clubs out of the aforementioned trio this transfer window, with the Reds bringing in 12 new signings following a disappointing end to last season.
The likes of Loic Mbe Soh, Scott McKenna and Tyler Blackett have arrived to add depth in defence, questioning whether the potential arrival of Phillips would be neccessary.
Phillips looks to be a talent and he deserves a shot at impressing in England, having been unable to do so at Anfield.
I don’t think Forest need him whatsoever, though. They already have Mbe Soh, McKenna, Blackett, Joe Worrall and Tobias Figueiredo, and should definitely concentrate on trimming the squad.
He could be a good signing for either Boro or Bristol City, though, so it will be interesting to see whether he leaves before the deadline.
