Liverpool FC are set to rival Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur for the signature of West Brom youngster Rakeem Harper this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Reds are among the clubs keeping tabs on the 19-year-old, who is out of contract this month and has failed to agree a new deal at The Hawthorns.

According to the same story, new Baggies boss Slaven Bilic is keen to hold talks to try and persuade the teenager to stay at West Brom.

However, the danger remains that West Brom could lose Harper for just a small compensation fee this summer.

Juventus, Liverpool FC and Tottenham are all said to be interested in landing the attacking midfielder this summer, according to the same story.

The teenager scored one goal and made one assist in 17 Championship games for West Bromwich Albion last season.

Liverpool FC are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to add to his squad ahead of next season.

The German guided Liverpool FC to their first major trophy since his appointment in 2015 when they beat Tottenham Hotspur to win the Champions League earlier this month.
