Premier League club Bournemouth are eyeing a permanent transfer for Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne ahead of the summer.
England international right-back Clyne is on a short-term loan deal at the Vitality Stadium until the end of the current campaign having joined the Cherries during the just concluded January transfer window.
Birmingham Mail claim that South Coast club Bournemouth want to turn his loan deal into a permanent transfer when the transfer window reopens in the summer.
Nathaniel Clyne has impressed in the colours of Bournemouth since he joined them last month.
Bournemouth moved to sign the 27-year-old following the serious injury suffered by previous right-back recipient Simon Francis.
English defender Francis has been ruled out for close to nine months after he suffered a serious knee injury during the 4-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester United in a Premier League game played in December.
It remains to be seen whether Liverpool would want to sanction a permanent move for the aforementioned Clyne.
The Reds have been heavily criticized over the decision to let the English right-back join Bournemouth on loan amidst the injury crisis at the club.
Nathaniel Clyne became a Liverpool player in the summer of 2015 in a £12.5m deal from fellow Premier League side Southampton.
