Newcastle United are facing competition for the signing of Liverpool defender Nat Phillips.
Magpies owner Mike Ashley is set to hand manager Steve Bruce a £50 million summer budget for new players.
Toon are expected target Arsenal star Joe Willock, who was on loan at the club in the second half of last season, with their war-chest.
Another on the radar is Reds centre-back Phillips, but they face competition for his signature in the form of Burnley, per The Sun.
The Clarets are also likely to spend more than usual this summer, given their new American ownership is keen to convince manager Sean Dyche that his long term future lies at the club.
