Southampton defender Nathaniel Clyne is currently undergoing a medical on Merseyside ahead of his £12.5million move to Liverpool.

The 24-year-old England right-back has returned from holiday and is in the city to complete the final stages of his transfer.

If everything goes to plan then Clyne is likely to be announced as the club's sixth summer signing on Wednesday, when the transfer window officially opens.

Liverpool have agreed a deal for Southampton right-back Nathaniel Clyne, according to the Liverpool Echo.

The Reds are looking for a defender after Glen Johnson left the club earlier this summer but had an initial approach for Clyne turned down.

Clyne is set to become Liverpool's sixth signing of the summer joining Roberto Firmino, Danny Ings, James Milner, Adam Bogdan and Joe Gomez.

Forward Danny Ings has pledged to become the best he can be after securing a dream move to Liverpool.

An impressive maiden top-flight season with Burnley has led to the 22-year-old agreeing a deal to swap Turf Moor for Anfield.

Ings will make the move at the end of his contract on July 1, continuing a remarkable ascent which started on the South coast.

A graduate of the Bournemouth youth system, he spent part of the 2010/11 season on loan in the Conference South with Dorchester Town before returning to the Cherries and then moving on to Burnley.

After helping England Under-21s to a 1-0 win against Sweden Ings said:

"Words can't describe it, the move that I've got for myself."

"At the same time, I've worked my way from the bottom, so it is even more special for me."

"It is a challenge I am looking forward to. I never sort of get complacent with anything like that and now I've got that move I will work even harder to try and get into that team and be the best professional I can be."

Teenager Joe Gomez set for Liverpool medical

Liverpool hope to finalise a deal for Charlton teenager Joe Gomez later this week with the 18-year-old scheduled to undergo a medical on Friday.

Press Association Sport understands the Reds have triggered a £3.5million release clause in the England Under-19 international's contract which has paved the way for the move to be completed and he will meet with club officials on Friday.

Liverpool are currently in discussions with the SkyBet Championship club over minor details regarding a sell-on fee should the defender subsequently leave Anfield in the future but those talks will not affect the deal going through.

Confirmation of their fourth summer signing - after Manchester City midfielder James Milner, Burnley striker Danny Ings and Bolton goalkeeper Adam Bogdan - is expected probably early next week.

Gomez's arrival is likely to signal the departure of centre-back Sebastian Coates to Sunderland on a £4million permanent deal after the 24-year-old spent a successful season on loan at the Stadium of Light.

Liverpool also remain interested in signing Southampton defender Nathaniel Clyne but having had an opening bid of £10million rejected they are prepared to be patient in their pursuit.

The apparent imminent arrival to St Mary's of Sporting Lisbon right-back Cedric Soares would appear to ease the way for the 24-year-old England international to move to Anfield but further negotiation is required with the Saints reportedly holding out for £15million.

City increase bid for Sterling to £40 million as Liverpool forward edges closer to move

Manchester City have made an improved £40million offer for Raheem Sterling but Liverpool are expected to reject the latest bid.

Having had an offer of £25million plus £5million worth of add-ons turned down last week, City have upped what they are willing to pay by £10million.

However, that still falls short of the £50million minimum Liverpool believe the 20-year-old England international is worth and they are likely to turn down the offer.

Liverpool have made their third signing of the summer with Bolton goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, another free agent, agreeing terms.

The 27-year-old Hungary international's contract with Wanderers, for whom he made more than 100 Premier League appearances, expires at the end of the month and he will officially join the Reds on July 1.

Bogdan's arrival follows that of Manchester City midfielder James Milner and Burnley striker Danny Ings, also both out of contract.
