Southampton should battle for former defender Clyne at £15m asking price

Nathaniel Clyne is reportedly on the market this summer for £15m and that should interest his old club Southampton.

Former Southampton right back Nathaniel Clyne will be allowed to leave Liverpool this summer for £15m, according to the Daily Mail.

They report that the Reds are embarking on a clearout this summer and Clyne, having fallen behind Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez in the right back pecking order, will be allowed to leave for an affordable price.

Clyne has spent the second half of the season on loan at Bournemouth, allowing him to get some football in his legs and put himself in the shop window.

 

And his old club Southampton could perhaps be in the market for a right back this summer, having allowed Cedric to leave on loan midway through 2018/19 – with the BBC reporting that Inter Milan can sign him on the back of that for £9.5m.

So, if the Saints get that fee in, their outlay to bring Clyne back would be £5.5m in real terms, which would be good value to bring a player in who knows the club so well.

Southampton look like they’re trying to get back to being the responsible, model club they once were and Clyne could well play a role in that.

Jan Valery has had an outstanding season but he will need experienced cover at times, which Clyne could well provide.
