Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne has set his sights on a return to boyhood club Crystal Palace before the end of this summer’s transfer window.

According to the Football Insider, Clyne has told friends that he wants to go back to Selhurst Park this summer.

England international Nathaniel Clyne is surplus to requirements at Liverpool and he was recently farmed out on loan to Bournemouth.

The former Southampton right-back spent the second half of last season with the Cherries.

He made 15 appearances for the South Coast club with 14 of those games coming in the top flight of English football.

During the first half of the season, Nathaniel Clyne made five appearances for Liverpool before joining Bournemouth on loan during the winter transfer window in January.

Clyne came through the ranks at Crystal Palace before he made his debut for the first team in 2008.

He went on to make 121 appearances for Crystal Palace in all competitions before leaving to join Southampton.

The 14-cap England international right-back signed for Liverpool from fellow Premier League club Southampton in 2015 and he was the undisputed first choice at the club until injury problems relegated him to a fringe role at Liverpool.

Liverpool rate him at £12m and he could be a direct replacement for Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka who’s expected to leave Selhurst Park this summer.
