Bournemouth set to bring in two Liverpool players

Jack O'Toole

Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne has agreed to join AFC Bournemouth for the rest of the season.

The England defender had an injury plagued 2018 and ultimately conceded his place in the starting side to Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Clyne has made just four appearances this season and will now join ex-Liverpool teammate Jordon Ibe at the Cherries.

Elsewhere Eddie Howe’s side have also been linked with a move for out-of-favour Reds striker Dominic Solanke.

The England forward has made just two appearances for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season as he finds himself stuck behind both Roberto Firmino and Daniel Sturridge at Anfield.

Bournemouth are well stocked in attack with both Callum Wilson and Josh King leading the line this season but with Jermain Defoe likely to leave this month there could be an opening for Solanke at the club.

Defoe’s reported 18 month loan deal to Rangers has not yet been finalised but it is likely that the 36-year-old will look to finish the season elsewhere after making just four appearances through the first half of the season.
