According to a report from Goal, West Ham are interested in signing Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne this summer. And some Reds fans have taken to Twitter in reaction to the speculation.
Jurgen Klopp is allegedly happy for the defender to move on, rather than offering him a new deal this summer.

Hammers boss David Moyes will surely be keen to bolster his right-back ranks this summer.
Pablo Zabaleta is set to leave at the end of the season whilst Ryan Fredericks has failed to live up to expectations at the London Stadium since joining from Fulham in the summer of 2018.
West Ham do have Jeremy Ngakia coming through the ranks. But it would be wise to use the youngster sporadically next season rather than week-in, week-out.
And perhaps Liverpool ace Nathaniel Clyne would be a useful addition for the Hammers.
Experienced, proven quality
The 29-year-old joined Liverpool from Southampton in the summer of 2015 for around £12.5 million (BBC).
The 14-capped England international has played second fiddle to Trent Alexander-Arnold since the youngster burst onto the scene at Anfield, however.
Clyne’s contract with the Reds expires at the end of this season (Transfermarkt), so his potential availability on a free transfer represents West Ham with a fantastic opportunity to secure themselves a bargain.
The Stockwell-born ace earns around £90,000 per week at Anfield (Empire of the Kop).
His injury record will be a cause for concern for West Ham, however.
Here’s how some Liverpool fans reacted on Twitter to the claims that Clyne could be moved on this summer…
Should’ve just sold him last season then 🤷♂️🤷♂️same with Lallana. Losing players like that for free…

If fit could still be a fantastic player for us. He will go somewhere and flourish. Again fitness needs to be ok

I like him he’s quality, doubt we’ll see him playing for us again but never say never

Feel bad for him, I thought he was quality too, injures can ruin a career especially during a peak time
