Nathaniel Clyne to choose between two former clubs this summer

Nathaniel Clyne to choose between two former clubs this summer

Unwanted Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne is likely to return to a past club

Following on from their Champions League final win at the start of June, Liverpool are clearing out any remaining deadwood in their squad, starting with Daniel Sturridge, who left following the end of his contract, and Alberto Moreno, who’s become a target for several recognised clubs.

Another player that has one foot out the exit door is right-back Nathaniel Clyne. The former starting player has fallen out of contention significantly after rising star Trent Alexander-Arnold cemented his place in the right-back position. Clyne went out on loan to Bournemouth midway through last season, coming as a shock to fans of the club as it left no depth if Alexander-Arnold picked up an injury, but The Cherries weren’t able to secure the defender on a permanent basis.

With a view to focus their attention toward younger alternatives, Bournemouth have reportedly ruled out any chance of signing Nathaniel Clyne permanently, opening his options up over where his future could lie outside of Merseyside.

Southampton and Crystal Palace both favourites to sign Nathaniel Clyne

Only BetVictor offer odds regarding Nathaniel Clyne’s potential next club, but it’s already obvious to see where they expect him to go next. Originally starting his youth career at Afewee Academy, Clyne was approached by Crystal Palace, where his professional career took off, leading to four years as a primary part of the Eagles’ starting eleven.

Consistent performances at Crystal Palace prompted a move to Southampton, where he progressed in three years at the club before moving on to Liverpool. His close ties to both Crystal Palace and Southampton have come back to find him once again, as they’re now the joint-favourites to sign him next, each priced at 4/1.

Not only would it make sense to see him back at either club, but they’re also both in need of a new right-back, Southampton waving goodbye to Cedric Soares and playing twenty-year-old Yan Valery in his place, and Crystal Palace almost certain to sell Aaron Wan-Bissaka this summer following an opening bid from Manchester United estimated at £40 million.

At least one of these prices should drop as we move further into the summer transfer window, and reports from journalists across the country already state that potential moves to West Ham United, Norwich City and Wolves are dead in the water.

Cedric Soares Southampton

Cedric Soares is likely to leave Southampton, and Crystal Palace’s Aaron Wan-Bissaka is picking up interest from Manchester United, so both clubs could be on the hunt for a right-back this summer.
