Leicester are targeting Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne ahead of a January move.

According to The Mirror, via The BBC, Leicester are keen to bring Clyne to the Midlands in the next transfer window.

Clyne is currently playing second fiddle to Trent Alexander-Arnold at Anfield after the young defender burst onto the scene last season and cemented his place in the team.

Leicester are now offering Clyne a way out to go and gain regular first-team minutes in the Premier League.

Clyne only made five first-team appearances for Liverpool last season as he struggled with injury, but he recently made his 100th appearance for the club.

Liverpool signed Clyne from Southampton in 2015 for a fee believed to be in the region of £12.5m.

He has been capped 14 times by England but was not in the squad for the World Cup in Russia.
