According to a report from Goal, West Ham are interested in signing Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne this summer.
Hammers boss David Moyes will surely be keen to bolster his right-back ranks at the end of the season.
Pablo Zabaleta is leaving when his contract is up, whilst Ryan Fredericks has failed to impress at the London Stadium.
Jeremy Ngakia has impressed for West Ham, but it would be foolhardy to put too much pressure on the youngster’s shoulders too soon.
And Goal claims that the Hammers could look to strengthen their ranks at right-back by signing Liverpool ace Nathaniel Clyne when the transfer window re-opens.
TAA now first-choice right-back at Anfield
The 29-year-old joined Liverpool from Southampton in the summer of 2015 for around £12.5 million (BBC).
He 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.
And Goal suggest that Jurgen Klopp would be happy to move Clyne on even if his contract was not due to expire.
In 185 Premier League appearances, the right-back has racked up an impressive 471 tackles, with a success rate of 69%. He has also made 276 interceptions and chalked up 30 blocked shots (premierleague.com).
In those games, the 29-year-old has whipped in 467 crosses and completed 252 accurate long balls (premierleague.com).
And if David Moyes manages to bring Clyne to the London Stadium, the £90,000 per week Liverpool ace (Empire of the Kop) might just be a very useful addition for West Ham. Especially on a free transfer transfer.
