Crystal Palace leading race to sign €20m-rated Liverpool footballer
Crystal Palace have held further talks with Liverpool over a move for Nathaniel Clyne, the 28-year-old right-back has fallen out of favour with Jurgen Klopp in recent campaigns following the emergence of Trent Alexander-Arnold. The German manager is prepared to part with the ace for nearly £15m.
Eagles are on the hunt for a replacement for Aaron Wan-Bissaka, the 21-year-old left the Palace earlier this transfer window to move to Man United, the England Under-21s star left in a deal worth £50m.
A move to Selhurst Park is perfect for Nathaniel as he looks to get his career back on track, the talented defender started his career with the Eagles and went to make 137 appearances for his boyhood club before moving to Southampton.
Clyne lost his place in Merseyside club’s starting lineup after Trent Alexander-Arnold broke into the team after working his way through the Reds’ academy ranks, England international has also battled with constant injury problems in recent years.
Nathaniel had the opportunity to get some much-needed minutes under his belt in the second half of last campaign, Clyne joined Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth on loan and made 15 appearances in the Premier League. He also named in the Three Lions squad several times which is already a big success for the footballer.
Crystal Palace had an excellent consequence in the Premier League as they finished the competition in a 12th position. Eagles added several players last summer like Cheikhou Kouyate from West Ham United, Max Meyer from Schalke 04 and Jordan Ayew from Swansea.
