A selection of the latest stories in the media involving Liverpool Football Club this Friday morning.
The Reds have reportedly rejected a £40 million bid for the 20-year-old and value him closer to £50 million.
They say the club's owners, Fenway Sports Group, are sick of the circus surrounding the winger's future, who has turned down a new contract offer at Anfield, and have told City to pay what Liverpool want or walk away.
The report says the Saints want a £15 million offer tabled for the 24-year-old, and a clear indication from Clyne himself that he wants to depart St Mary's before agreeing any deal with Liverpool.
It seems Southampton already have their replacement for Clyne - who has just one year left on his contract - after signing Cedric Soares for £3.5 million.
He only managed to score the one goal in 14 appearances in the 2013/14 season, with most of his appearances coming as cameos from the substitute's bench. Last season he spent the campaign on loan at Sevilla - and played a part in their Europa League success.
