West Ham are keen on bringing Liverpool full-back Nathaniel Clyne to their squad in the summer in an attempt to solidify their defence, according to reports.
Clyne spent the second half of last season out on loan at Bournemouth, who finished 14th place in the Premier League this season, behind Newcastle on goal difference.
The 28-year-old has struggled with injuries over the last year resulting in inconsistency and some questionable performances but the Hammers still see some potential in the Englishman. He featured 20 times for the Cherries in all competitions after his move from Liverpool.
West Ham’s right-back position is definitely somewhere that needs looking at with Ryan Fredericks also suffering from injuries and with Pablo Zabaleta turning 34 last January.
Goal report that Liverpool would be willing to let Clyne go for around £10 million. During his time at Liverpool, Clyne displayed some fantastic ability, earning regular call ups to the England squad, but injuries saw his form, unfortunately, decline over the last couple of seasons and he’s now fallen behind Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez in the pecking order at Anfield.
Should Manuel Pellegrini look to bring the player to the London Stadium, he may face competition from Bournemouth who, according to Goal, have considered making the signing permanent.
