Liverpool in desperate chase with Milan clubs for “new Hatem Ben Arfa”

Posted by

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool have been hugely impressive this term, playing both with Philippe Coutinho as a false nine and with Divock Origi as a more traditional axis up front.

In both systems the focus is on Liverpool’s small, technical players to create chances, meaning the Reds need a healthy supply of that type of player. One they are keeping an eye on at the moment is Amine Harit of Nantes, according to the Sun.

The 19 year old was called the “new Hatem Ben Arfa” in the same piece, with Reds fans probably hoping that’s more because of his talent and dribbling ability rather than his flakiness or inconsistency.

It’s not going to be a straightforward pursuit for Jurgen Klopp. The Sun’s article cites Calcio Mercato as their source, and the Italian site has both Inter and AC Milan in hot pursuit of Harit. Any player with that much ability is going to find themselves a target, and Harit will be no exception.
