French Claims That Liverpool Are ‘Back In’ For Ben Arfa

8 years ago

You may have seen headlines floating about in the last hour or two saying that Liverpool are ‘back in’ for Hatem Ben Arfa.

This follows a short article on French magazine website L’Equipe saying that despite the Scousers already being active in the transfer market, according to L’Equipe’s information, Liverpool have approached Newcastle a few days ago.

Ben Arfa is contracted to Newcastle until June 2015 and there has previously been talk of the club attempting to extend the French maestro’s contract with an enhanced package to help convince him to stay.

However, with even Derek Llambias jumping ship this summer, god knows who is still at the club to try and make something like this happen.

As for Ben Arfa himself, he’s never said anything but positive things about both club and city during his time on Tyneside. However, in these strange times I worry about everything and find it hard to be enthusiastic about the club moving forward again, as ever I hope to be proved wrong.
