According to talkSPORT Liverpool have joined a clutch of elite European clubs chasing Nantes tyro Amine Harit.
In the piece, it’s noted as well as the Reds, Paris Saint-Germain, Bayern Munich and AC Milan are all keeping a close eye on the youngster. However, it’s added that Reds boss Klopp is a big fan of the 19-year-old and could make a move for the versatile midfielder in January.
Harit has been extremely impressive in his Ligue 1 outings this season, linking play together in midfielder with a tremendous flair. Here is a look at why he’s creating so much buzz:
Although he’s still got a lot to learn at senior level, there’s an ease with which the youngster moves the ball that’d appeal to plenty of clubs sniffing around. Harit’s bravery in tight spaces on the pitch and turn of speed with the ball at his feet have stood out in particular in 2016-17.
These statistics from WhoScored.com last month sum up just how impressive Harit has been in dangerous areas, too:

This season is the first one in which the youngster has burst onto the scene and made a serious impression in the Nantes side. With that in mind, the natural instinct is to suggest speculation should be ignored and Harit should concentrate on playing and improving at the Stade de la Beaujoire.
However, the aforementioned clubs carry a very special allure, including Liverpool. And for any youngster looking to add facets to their game, the chance to work with Klopp is not something that should be shunned lightly.
