Fulham have asked Liverpool if they can take out-of-favour defender Nathaniel Clyne on a season-long loan deal.
According to The BBC, The Cottagers new boss Ranieri has spoken to the Reds about a potential deal for England international defender on loan.
The 27-year-old defender is currently out-of-favour at the Merseyside Reds and has been rumoured with a January switch to Leicester City and Cardiff.
Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez are both ahead of Clyne in the pecking order at Anfield, with the Reds boss, Jurgen Klopp seemingly set to let the ex-Southampton defender leave.
Claudio Ranieri is keen to strengthen the defensive end at Fulham and has identified English centre-back as the ideal target for the January transfer window.
Clyne has been capped 14 times by England at senior level and has played almost 100 games for Liverpool in all competitions since his transfer from Southampton back in 2015.
Meanwhile, Liverpool attacking duo Divock Origi and Domenic Solanke are also likely to departure from Anfield in January as both of them seeking a regular first-team football.
