Liverpool have reportedly made a Â£12.5m bid for Southampton defender Nathaniel Clyne, less than 24 hours after the signing of Brazilian Roberto Firmino from Hoffenheim on a Â£29m deal, reports The Guardian.
The Reds are continuing to make the pace in the summer transfer market and look set to add clubâ€™s sixth summer signing after hoping to make the England international to Anfield.
An initial bid of Â£10million for the 24-year-old right-back was rejected last month but the Reds manager Brendan Rodgers submitted with an improved offer of Â£10.5million, eventually rising to Â£12.5million.
The defender is currently in his final year of his currentÂ contract at St Mary’s, he doesnâ€™t want to extend his stay to remain with the Saints.
Clyne could become Rodgerâ€™s sixth summer acquisition following the arrivals of Joe Gomez, Adam Bogdan, James Milner, Danny Ings and Roberto Firmino.
