Liverpool fans have delivered a mixed response on Twitter to a report that Barcelona are eyeing a move for Nathaniel Clyne.
The Daily Express claim that the former Southampton star was on the radar of the La Liga champions, with Luis Enrqiue keen on strengthening his defence.
Barcelona are currently playing midfielder Sergi Roberto out of position at right back, with Aleix Vidal filing to hit the heights since joining the club.
Clyne, 25, has been one of Liverpool’s star performers this season, occupying Liverpool’s right flank and becoming one of the first names on Jurgen Klopp’s team sheet.
But Liverpool fans couldn’t make up their minds on Twitter, with some claiming that Clyne is not good enough for Barcelona, whereas some revealed they will be gutted if the England international opts to move.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
People who want Clyne sold, just look at who's interested – City & Barca – should tell you all you need. Clearly 1 of the best RB's in Prem.

But In the other hand, if there is one defender that can succeed under Barca is Clyne. One of the best if not the best RB in the world

Hope Nathaniel Clyne does go to Barca, so sick of seeing Walker get picked ahead of him for England

Wouldn't swap Nathaniel Clyne for any RB, let alone anyone in the Premier League. Best we've had since Steve Finnan. #LFC

Unnecessary meltdown Regarding Nathaniel Clyne. He is not going anywhere and we are 2 months away from a Transfer window. Shhhhh

I hope you have a great weekend unless you want Liverpool to sell Nathaniel Clyne, in which case I hope you stub your toe and get a papercut

The right back, who began his career with Crystal Palace, has made 64 league and cup appearances for Liverpool since his move to Anfield in the summer of 2014.
A move to Barcelona would see the Spanish Champions finally find a long-term replacement for Brazilian Dani Alves, who moved to Italian giants Dani Alves in the summer.
In other Liverpool transfer news, this man mountain could be on his way to Anfield as the two parties come close to completing talks.
