Clyne set to stay at Liverpool & could start season opener against West Ham
The defender made just five appearances for the Reds last term as he battled with a back injury, and saw Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez impress in his stead as a top-four Premier League finish and a place in the Champions League were secured.
With just two years remaining on the contract he signed following a move from Southampton in the summer of 2015, it was thought Clyne could look for a move away in search of guaranteed game time in 2018-19.
Crucially, the player has also yet to offer any suggestion that he is keen to depart Anfield this summer.
Klopp’s desire to use Gomez more frequently at centre-back – a position where he is considered a potential long-term partner to Virgil van Dijk – leaves Clyne to fight it out with Alexander-Arnold for a starting berth at right-back this term.
As such, only a significant offer could test Liverpool’s resolve over the Englishman before Thursday’s transfer deadline, with Klopp and the club’s sporting director Michael Edwards both minded to resist any bids.
