Watford have reportedly joined West Ham United in the race to sign Liverpool centre-back Nathaniel Phillips.
Despite this, he has failed to secure regular game time this term. Van Dijk, Matip, Gomez and Ibrahima Konate are preferred ahead of him.
According to Football Insider, Phillips is likely to leave the Reds this month despite being sidelined for two more weeks with a broken cheekbone.
The Hornets are keen on strengthening their backline this month. Claudio Ranieri has identified Phillips as an option to boost their survival.
Liverpool are likely to demand around £12-15m for the defender, who has been with them since 2016. His only loan spell has been with Stuttgart.
