The 26-year-old has struggled for game time with Celtic, making only six appearances for a total of 314 minutes.
Phillips was also hardly used during the Glasgow side’s poor Champions League campaign that resulted in them finishing bottom of Group E.
The Reds could send the defender out on his fourth loan spell in five seasons, following short stints with Stuttgart and Bournemouth.
The 44-year-old is regarded as someone well equipped to replace Jorg Schmadtke in a new-look structure at Anfield.
Schmadtke is one of a number of faces that are set to leave the Reds, headlined by manager Jurgen Klopp, who announced that he would step down as manager at the end of the season on Friday.
The German joined Liverpool in January 2023 but it was revealed earlier this week that he would be stepping down from his role at the end of the current transfer window.
