Liverpool have had a £12.5m bid for Southampton full-back Nathaniel Clyne accepted, according to reports.

The England international has been linked with a move to Anfield this summer, and has only 12 months remaining on his contract at St Mary's.

The Telegraph have reported that Liverpool have offered an initial £10.5m for the 24-year-old, which will rise to £12.5m.

The Reds require a right-back, after Glen Johnson's contract was not renewed over the summer. He is now a free agent.

Liverpool have signed four players this summer - Danny Ings, Adam Bogdan, Joe Gomez and James Milner.


Clyne came through the ranks at Crystal Palace’s academy before joining Saints, and has since gone on to make the right-back berth at St Mary’s his own – culminating in a first England cap last year. Clyne has since gone to make seven appearances for his country, with the latest coming in the Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia last weekend, although he cut a frustrated figure after being overlooked in the first-team for United’s Phil Jones and only came on with minutes to go.
