Liverpool have already been busy this transfer window. The Reds have signed Takumi Minamino from Red Bull Salzburg, as well as Joe Hardy from Brentford. There has also been loan departures for Rhian Brewster, Isaac Christie-Davies and Herbie Kane, whilst Rhys Williams has had his loan spell extended. According to The Express we could be set to see another departure, with rumours of West Ham United preparing a bid for Nathaniel Clyne.
Clyne hasn’t played since he tore his ACL during the pre-season tour of the United States, suffering the horror injury during the defeat to Borussia Dortmund.
The right back arrived at Anfield from Southampton in 2015 in a £12.5m deal. He has seen his role reduced in recent seasons due to a series of injuries and the ascendancy of Trent Alexander-Arnold.
It looks as though the full back may have played his last game for the club, as West Ham United are thought to be weighing up a move for Clyne this month in order to fill in for the injured Ryan Fredericks.

If we can convince West Ham United to sign Clyne then Michael Edwards may well be the devil. Although the defender never kicked up a fuss at Anfield, his injury record alone makes him a toxic purchase for any side.
Whatever happens, we don’t imagine the Englishman will be around much longer as his contract expires in the summer – to cash in on him now would be yet another stroke of genius from Edwards and co.
