West Ham are interested in adding Nathaniel Clyne to their squad this summer, according to a report from Goal. 

The right-back is currently on loan at Bournemouth, after he was shipped off during the January transfer window. 

Deemed to be surplus to requirements, a permanent exit from Anfield is almost guaranteed, with the 28-year-old firmly replaced in the starting XI by Trent Alexander-Arnold.

With the Cherries supposedly in pole position to add the veteran when the transfer window opens, it seems they won’t be alone in their pursuit of the former Southampton man. 

West Ham have also emerged as a possible suitor for Clyne, keen to add some veteran experience to compete with Ryan Fredericks. Pablo Zabaleta is out of contract at the end of the season, and it is as yet unclear whether or not the Hammers want to bring the Argentine back for another year at the London Stadium – perhaps their decision is dependent on what happens with Nathaniel Clyne.
