Liverpool supporters in the Transfer Tavern are hopeful that more deals will be completed for new arrivals before the conclusion of the summer transfer window.
Having successfully secured Champions League qualification following their playoff victory against Hoffenheim, Liverpool recognises the importance of sufficient squad depth to maintain a quest for silverware in all four competitions.
With Philippe Coutinho potentially to depart Anfield and considering Adam Lallana’s injury, the Reds could benefit from the addition of another attack-minded player, not a guaranteed starter – rather a player who will provide crucial protection and necessary squad depth. Our landlord has highlighted PSG’s Hatem Ben Arfa as a potential recruit.
The 30-year-old is likely to depart PSG following their summer activity, and the former Newcastle star possesses all the required traits to be of service to Jurgen Klopp’s side. The Frenchman has attained the experience of playing in the Premier League due to his time at Newcastle United and Hull City respectively. Additionally, he thrived during his time with Ligue 1 side Nice scoring a stunning total of 17 goals in 38 appearances.
Ben Arfa’s arrival would provide considerable competition to Liverpool’s attacking players, while also strengthening Liverpool’s attacking options. Depth will be of undeniable importance to the Reds this season, therefore signing a player who has testified his ability to play at the highest level would be a very sensible move for Liverpool. Considering that Ben Arfa has been deemed surplus to requirements at PSG, he might be available for a very affordable price.
