28-year-old Liverpool Defender Set To Leave Anfield

Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne is expected to leave the club this summer according to the report from the London Evening Standard.

The 28-year-old is said to be surplus to requirements at Liverpool who are ready to entertain offers for him during this summer’s transfer window.

Nathaniel Clyne was previously the first choice right-back at Liverpool until injury problems led to his long absence from the team.

During his enforced absence at Liverpool, young English right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold established himself as the Reds’ undisputed first choice at the right side of defence and Nathaniel Clyne has been reduced to a fringe player at Anfield since his return from injury during the 2017/18 season.

The English international player spent the second half of last season at fellow Premier League club Bournemouth who are interested in a permanent deal for him.

Clyne made 15 appearances for Bournemouth in all competitions while he was at the Vitality Stadium between January and May 2018.

Apart from Bournemouth, Nathaniel Clyne has also been linked with a return to his former club Crystal Palace.

He could be the direct replacement for Manchester United-bound Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

The Red Devils have agreed on a £55m deal with Crystal Palace for Wan-Bissaka and the Eagles will definitely need a quality replacement like former player Clyne if Wan-Bissaka leaves Selhurst Park as expected.
