Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne is reportedly the subject of loan interest from Bournemouth.
Eddie Howe’s men are understood to have enquired about the possibility of signing the 27-year-old until the end of the season, given his current lack of playing time at Anfield.
According to the Sun, Howe is looking to strengthen his options in Clyne’s position as Adam Smith has only just returned from injury and Simon Francis has recently been ruled out for the rest of the campaign.
The Liverpool man is firmly behind Trent Alexander-Arnold in Jurgen Klopp’s pecking order at present and has featured in just four Premier League games in 2018/19.
It is said that the Reds’ manager is willing to allow Nathaniel Clyne to leave on loan, and it will be down to the player to decide whether he wants to move or not.
He has a contract at Anfield until 2020, though has interest from multiple top-flight sides, with Cardiff City also interested.
Neil Warnock’s side initially looked to be the frontrunner’s for Clyne’s signature, but may now have been leapfrogged by the Cherries.
