Liverpool recorded their first win of the Premier League season by beating Bournemouth 3-1 on Saturday. 

The Reds fell behind at Anfield but goals from Luis Diaz, Mohamed Salah and Diogo Jota turned the game on its head and ensured that Jurgen Klopp’s side were victorious.

Midfielder Wataru Endo made his debut during the match, being substituted on in the second half just 24 hours after finalising his move from Stuttgart.

Liverpool have also appealed the red card handed to Alexis Mac Allister following his challenge on Ryan Christie, with Klopp hoping to have the Argentine available for their trip to Newcastle United on Sunday.

In the meantime, it appears that the Reds remain in the market for another new midfielder.

As per 90min, the club are considering a shock move for Manchester City midfielder Kalvin Phillips.

The 27-year-old joined the Citizens from Leeds United last summer but has struggled for first team opportunities since moving to Manchester.

Phillips has emerged as a shock target for Liverpool

In total the England international has made just 21 appearances for his current side, and Liverpool could make a shock move for the player.

It is also claimed that German giants Bayern Munich could also move for Phillips, with the manager of the Bundesliga champions, Thomas Tuchel, said to be an admirer.

Current Bayern midfielder, Ryan Gravenberch, is said to be a target for both Liverpool and Manchester United and the Dutchman’s future could therefore have significant implications for Phillips.

Despite showing interest, it is claimed that both United and the Reds would prefer a loan move for Gravenberch, while his current employers favour a permanent sale.

Phillips, meanwhile, is contracted to City until the summer of 2028 having signed a six-year-deal when completing his £45 million move from Leeds last year.

The Englishman has previously insisted that he is keen to stay put at The Etihad and fight for a starting spot.
