Liverpool are interested in securing the services of Marseille teenager Maxime Lopez, who has been labelled the “new Samir Nasri” according to the Le Parisien.
Arsenal are also interested in the youngster according to the paper.
The attacking midfielder made his first team debut for the south French club last week in a 0-0 draw against Bordeaux, and was watched by various scouts.
The 18 year old has also been recently named in the France U20s, meaning the English clubs will likely not be the only ones after his services. His contract expires in June, meaning it would be relatively easy to sign the player if he decides not to renew his deal.
The Nasri comparisons are easy to understand on and off the pitch. Not only are they both products of the Marseille youth academy, they play in a similar way: creative but with a mean streak that seems to be bred on the streets on the port city.
