Leicester City have been linked with a move for Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne in January, Leicestershire Live report.

The 27-year-old has struggled to break into Jurgen Klopp’s first-team plans this season, with young defensive duo of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez occupying the right-back spot.

Clyne, who made the move to Anfield from Southampton back in 2015, has made only appearance for his current club this season, featuring in the Reds’ 2-1 Carabao Cup defeat to Chelsea back in September.

And with his time with Liverpool seemingly coming to an end, the English international is attracting interest from numerous Premier League sides.

Former Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri is reportedly monitoring Clyne’s situation, along with newly promoted Cardiff City.

The Foxes’ current first choice right-back is Ricardo Pereira, who made the move to England from FC Porto in the summer.

Meanwhile, Danny Simpson, another right-back at the King Power Stadium, made his first appearance of the season in Leicester’s Carabao Cup win against Southampton in midweek, so a potential move for Clyne could well be seen as an unusual one by the Foxes’ faithful.
