FULHAM boss Claudio Ranieri hopes to tempt Nathaniel Clyne into ending his Anfield misery.
Ranieri has asked Liverpool to let him have the former Crystal Palace prospect on loan for the rest of the season.

The Cottagers need an answer to their right-back problems and have been tipped off that Clyne prefers a return to the capital.
The 27-year-old will have a major say on where he goes after losing his place at Liverpool through injury and then the emergence of Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Boss Jurgen Klopp also has Joe Gomez as an option at full-back so is happy for Clyne to go out on loan and reignite his career.
It could lead to a permanent exit for the former Southampton defender further down the line.

Cardiff boss Neil Warnock also wants Clyne and is a huge fan from his Palace days.
Leicester have made a surprise inquiry too, but it is not certain he would play regularly there.
The Reds need to be sure Clyne, who joined in 2015 for £12.5million, is getting game time.
Clyne has featured just once in all competitions this season – starting in the Carabao Cup defeat against Chelsea.
