Six-time European champions Liverpool will rival the duo of Tottenham Hotspur and Juventus for the right to sign West Brom starlet Rakeem Harper according to the latest reports emanating from the media in the United Kingdom.

Rakeem Harper is close to the end of his career at West Brom who are keen to offer him a new contract to make him stay at the Hawthorns beyond this summer.

According to the publication from the Daily Mirror, the young West Brom player has been attracting the interest of the biggest sides on the European football stage.

Italian Serie A champions Juventus and North London giants Tottenham Hotspur will have to rival Liverpool for the right to sign the player on a free transfer this summer.

Harper made 16 appearances for West Brom during the just concluded season as he helped the Baggies secure a spot in the English Championship playoffs.

West Brom were beaten by Midland rivals Aston Villa on penalties in the semifinals of the playoffs after both sides played out a 3-3 draw at the end of two legs.

Rakeem Harper would definitely be a futuristic signing for Liverpool if the Reds are able to pull off his signing ahead of other clubs like Juventus and Tottenham Hotspur.
