League leaders Liverpool are open to selling Nathaniel Clyne this January window if the right offer was to come in for the right-back.
Clyne hasn't started a competitive game for the Reds this season, playing in three pre-season friendlies before a serious knee injury. He spent last season on loan at Bournemouth and appeared 14 times for the Cherries.
However, James Pearce revealed at a Q&A session for the Athletic that Liverpool are now trying to move the England international on permanently.
When asked about potential departures from Anfield, Pearce replied: "Clyne is an interesting one.
"He’s getting close to fitness again after an ACL injury and LFC are open to offers from him during this window. West Ham and [Crystal] Palace have shown interest previously.”
Clyne has struggled for game time at Anfield ever since suffering a back injury during the 2017/18 season where he managed to play only three games. This resulted in the emergence of Trent Alexander-Arnold and the rest is history.
Alexander-Arnold has developed into one of the best right-backs in the world and left Clyne far behind in his shadow. It's at the point now where Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp would arguably prefer Joe Gomez covering in that position ahead of Clyne.
The 28-year-old has been linked with his previous club in Crystal Palace where he started his career and played over 100 games. He earned a move to the south coast when Southampton signed him and starred in a Saints team that also included Dejan Lovren and Sadio Mané.
He earned a move to Merseyside - alongside Lovren and Mané - and established himself as the number one choice down the right side of defence prior to a string on injuries. Having played at international level, too, with 14 games for England, Clyne could provide vital experience.
With the transfer window wide open and with three weeks left, it looks like Clyne could finally get a permanent move away that could provide him with more Premier League minutes.
