The ‘New Hatem Ben Arfa’ Could Effectively Replace Mane At Liverpool – Go For It Klopp

Amine Harit is a reported target for Liverpool

You never know what’s going to happen during the transfer season, as surprises often occur after several months of speculation and opinions regarding what a determined club should and shouldn’t do with their money and their players.

And, with that new trend of signing unproven youngsters and prospects that most of the big teams in the world are following right now, it’s not rare to find sceptical fans who don’t seem very pleased with the guys who arrive into their clubs.

Now, a team which been following that policy since a couple of years are the red half of Merseyside, Liverpool, as the reds are putting together an amazingly talented academy with several lads that might as well impress their current boss, Jurgen Klopp.

So, let’s take a look at a player who has been reportedly been followed very closely by the Reds, as they need to fill a couple of voids in their squad thanks to their injury of Philippe Coutinho and the departure of Sadio Mane to play for Senegal: “The New Hatem Ben Arfa”, Amine Harit.

Harit is a 19-year-old French forward who currently plays for Nantes in the Ligue 1, a tournament which is developing some interesting prospects as years go by, and where British scouts are finding more hidden gems on a regular basis.

The youngster has proven to be one of the most versatile forwards in France right now, being able to play on either flank of the pitch as well as behind the striker, playing both as a winger or as an attacking midfielder, and even as a central midfielder if needed.

Harit has clocked up 18 appearances in all competitions this season

His dribbling skills and shooting abilities are his presentation card, as well as his speed and intelligence to get past the defenders has been his trademark. However, he still has a lot of improving to do when it comes to crossing and keeping the ball, and his aerial game is still very rough.

The young lad has managed to score a goal over 14 appearances for his current team, but even if those numbers aren’t quite encouraging, he’s shown glances of greatness over the course of the season, making him a very interesting prospect to follow.

Harit can be a very good signing for Klopp’s team, as the German is known for his development of youngsters, especially on the offensive end of the pitch, where the French forward thrives with great ease.

His versatility could make him a perfect fit for a Liverpool team which plays with three pretty mobile guys like Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and Philippe Coutinho, as he could substitute any of them on a given night when the team needs him.

On top of that, the team’s lack of depth behind those guys, as well as Mane’s inevitable departure for over a month, would make that signing even better for every party involved, as even if he wouldn’t be a starter on a regular basis, he’d have a lot of minutes to continue his development.

There’s still are a lot of doubts about this youngster and what he could wind up being, but the talent is there and it shows every time he steps on the pitch, so he could be a very very good purchase by the Reds during this upcoming transfer window.
