Nat Phillips said Sky Sports News He is ready to move away from Liverpool in January – if Anfield receives an acceptable offer.
The 24-year-old, who is currently suffering from a broken cheekbone, has been told that Liverpool will not stand in the way of their search for regular first-team football should the right bid emerge.
Phillips will miss the holiday schedule after injuring his cheekbone against AC Milan in the Champions League last week, but he does not need surgery.
West Ham, who are missing Angelo Ogbonna and Kurt Zouma, have been linked with the defender ahead of the upcoming transfer window.
Phillips, who has become a fan favorite at Anfield, said: “I want to play matches. It has been tough because the competition to join this team is fierce.
“The manager and I both agree that the best thing for me is to play as many matches as possible. I think you saw last year that you developed well.
“I’ll see what happens [in January] And go from there. I think at the moment I’m not likely to play a lot of games for Liverpool, so if I had a chance and had the opportunity to do it somewhere else and it worked for everyone, that’s definitely something I’d be interested in.
“I’ve had the experience and the experience in the Premier League and the Champions League. So maybe those situations where you’re new and tense, I’ve been through that phase.
“You don’t need to go through that process if you go somewhere else. I’ll be ready right away to get involved and play.”
Phillips says he has learned a lot from training with the likes of Virgil van Dijk on a daily basis and believes the training alone has given him the perfect experience of a potential life away from Anfield.
He added: “We have not only defenders, but attackers as well. If I practice my training against the attackers, it puts me in a good position.
“I can’t complain. The level in training is improving me every day. If it hadn’t happened, I would definitely have lived a happy life.”
