# How to make a word clickable to send you to a certain reference in the bibliography?

I am trying to make a word hyperlinked and clickable that if one click on it, can see a certain reference at bibliography. I guessed \hyperlink works but does not. This is a sample:

 \documentclass{article}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage[hypcap]{caption}
\usepackage{cleveref}
\usepackage[style=nature]{biblatex}
\usepackage[english]{babel}

\begin{document}

\section{Introduction}
... phenomenon; Gent and Lindley \hyperlink{\cite{gent1959internal}}{proposed} a more effective strategy...\par
\noindent... phenomenon; Gent and Lindley proposed a more effective strategy...\cite{gent1959internal}

\newpage
\printbibliography

\end{document}


This is also my .bib file:

@inproceedings{gent1959internal,
title={Internal rupture of bonded rubber cylinders in tension},
author={Gent, AN and Lindley, PB},
booktitle={Proceedings of the Royal Society of London A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences},
volume={249},
number={1257},
pages={195--205},
year={1959},
organization={The Royal Society}
}

biblatex automatically sets hyper-linking anchors for the bibliography which we can access with cite.<refsection>@<entrykey> for example with the following command

\newcommand{\citelink}[2]{\hyperlink{cite.\therefsection @#1}{#2}}


which you can use as \citelink{<entrykey>}{<linked text>}, e.g. \citelink{sigfridsson}{proposed}.
