Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne is facing an uncertain future at the club after losing his place in the starting XI for the better part of the last two years.

The England international right-back was previously a regular in the Liverpool starting XI under Jurgen Klopp before injury struck.

He missed almost all the Liverpool games during the 2016/17 season because of a serious knee injury.

Midfielder James Milner deputised for him at right-back during his absence and before the emergence of Trent Alexander-Arnold as the undisputed first choice right-back.

20-year-old Alexandre-Arnold has justified his status as the first choice Liverpool right-back after the England national team player impressed a great deal for the Reds last season.

He broke the record for the number of Premier League assists made by a defender (12 assists) as Liverpool missed out on the title by one point before playing a crucial part in their Champions League final triumph over Tottenham Hotspur in Madrid.

Clyne made 15 appearances for Bournemouth while he was on loan for the second half of the just concluded season and the Cherries are interested in a permanent deal for him.

Bournemouth Starting XI (4-2-3-1): Asmir Begovic; Nathaniel Clyne, Nathan Ake, Adam Smith; Dan Gosling, Jefferson Lerma; Ryan Fraser, David Brooks, Joshua King; Callum Wilson.
