Napoli are a surprise contender for the signing of forgotten Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne this summer.
The Italian side are in the market for a new right back this transfer window and have made contact with Liverpool about signing the Englishman, according to a report from Goal's Reds correspondent Neil Jones.
Liverpool have put a £15m valuation on Clyne, with interest in him also coming from Premier League duo West Ham and Bournemouth - the right back where he spent the second half of the season on loan with the Cherries.
However, Clyne is entering the final year of his contract with the Reds and is viewed by Napoli as a cheaper option than Trippier, who is likely to cost more than £25m.
The now 28-year-old flourished with the Saints, with his excellent form earning him a place in the England squad.
He was also a near ever-present in second season, appearing in 37 of 38 league games. However, injury problems saw him fall behind the likes of Trent-Alexander Arnold, Joe Gomez and James Milner in the pecking order at Liverpool, with the former in particular much more suited to Jurgen Klopp's attack-minded game.
Clyne joined Bournemouth until the end of the season in January, and made 15 appearances for the Cherries in all competitions.
