Fulham have reportedly joined the race to sign Liverpool right-back Nathaniel Clyne on loan.
WalesOnline reported last month that Clyne — currently out of favour and lacking first team game time under Jurgen Klopp — was on Neil Warnock’s radar ahead of a January loan swoop.
But The Sun now claims Fulham are leading the chase for Clyne’s signature with Claudio Ranieri eyeing more January recruits to help the Cottagers’ survival bid.
Leicester City are also interested, according to reports.
It is claimed Ranieri has made an enquiry to opposite number Klopp to have Clyne on loan until the end of the season, with the player reputedly keen on a move to London.
Clyne finds himself behind Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez in the Anfield pecking order and it seems certain he will seek pastures new in January.
Cardiff want a right-back as well as a striker and central midfielder, but Fulham’s interest may come as a blow to their interest in Clyne, who was handed his professional debut at Crystal Palace by Bluebirds head honcho Warnock.
Leicester are also keen on the 27-year-old, with the race set to hot up between now and the New Year.
