According to website France Football, Hatem Ben Arfa was in England to negotiate a new contract with Liverpool on Tuesday of this week.
The player has been linked most recently with Newcastle. But prior to that Arsene Wenger was seriously considering engaging the Olympique Marseille player.
Javier Mascherano’s departure to FC Barcelona will free up the desperately needed funds to let this happen.
Liverpool have to reassert themselves this season and Roy Hogson knows that every advantage available to him must be grabbed before the window slams shut in a matter of days now.
OM’s sporting director, Jose Anigo: “There is still no firm proposals from clubs but appointments are set.”
For now, Ben Arfa does not train more with the OM. The French international spent most of his time in his Paris apartment and regularly jogging in the Bois de Boulogne.”Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
