Napoli switch focus from Trippier and join race for Liverpool ace

Nathaniel Clyne TEAMtalk

Serie A side Napoli have seemingly switched their focus from Kieran Trippier and reportedly joined the race to land a Liverpool star.

The player in question is Nathaniel Clyne, who was on loan at Bournemouth from the Reds for the second half of last season – where he made 15 appearances in all competitions down on the south coast.

The former Southampton star has only played 10 matches for Liverpool in the last two seasons after suffering a serious back injury in the 2017-18 campaign that severly hampered his playing time.

And according to reports from Goal, Napoli, who are on the lookout for a new right-back, ‘have made an approach to sign’ the 28-year-old.

The report goes on to add that Liverpool rate the England international at £15million, with the Cherries keen on picking up a permanent deal and West Ham also keen.

Napoli have also been showing a strong interest in Spurs ace Trippier, who has not had the best of campaigns after an impressive World Cup, and is expected to be sold this summer – with Atletico Madrid also keen on his signature.
