Liverpool to rival Tottenham & Juventus for teenage transfer target

Juventus are hopeful of pipping Liverpool and Tottenham to West Brom youngster Rakeem Harper.

Harper, 19, is out of contract this month and has failed to agree an extension at the Hawthorns.

New boss Slaven Bilic is keen to hold talks with the youngster in a bid to persuade him to stay at the Championship club and play a key role in the push for promotion.

But the Baggies are in danger of losing Harper for just a small compensation fee.

Liverpool and Tottenham are also interested in the teenager, who has been with West Brom since the age of 12.

Harper made 16 appearances for West Brom last season as they made the Championship play-offs.

He is likely to be given a chance to impress under Bilic, if he can be persuaded to sign a new contract.

The former West Ham boss will be unveiled this week before stepping up his preparations for the new season.
