Liverpool’s Nathaniel Clyne is the perfect solution for Fulham’s right back woes

Liverpool’s Nathaniel Clyne has not played a single Premier League minute all season at Anfield, and must surely be looking for a way out of the Merseyside club.

With the right back seemingly frozen out at Liverpool, Clyne should target a move to Fulham in order to gain first-team football and help stitch up the Whites’ porous backline.

The right back position has been a constant headache for Slavisa Jokanovic all season long, as Fulham have struggled to replace Ryan Fredericks.

Jokanovic has alternated between playing Cyrus Christie and Timothy Fosu-Mensah, yet neither defender has been convincing at the back.

 

Christie has appeared completely out of his depths in the Premier League, evidenced by his shocking display against Arsenal.

And although Fosu-Mensah has shown encouraging signs of potential, he remains prone to making inexcusable errors at the back, such as his senseless challenge against Bournemouth that led to the Cherries’ opening goal on Saturday.

Clyne would offer over five seasons of top-class Premier League experience from his days with Southampton and Liverpool, as well as his England international pedigree.

And at only 27 years of age, the defender still has plenty left in his tank and could be productive for another half-decade at Craven Cottage.

Nathaniel Clyne must end his Liverpool exile and depart for Fulham in January, saving his career and the SW6 defence in the process.
