According to a report on Spanish transfer website, Ben Arfa could be the subject of a £20m bid from the Reds, and is open to the idea of moving to Anfield.

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew will be loathe to lose another key member of his squad – after Demba Ba’s £7.5m switch to Chelsea in January – especially given Ben Arfa has missed large parts of this season through injury. (Daily Express)

The Frenchman is brilliantly gifted and will surely be chased by a few clubs in the summer transfer window so although Newcastle may want to keep him. Liverpool will just be a one of a number of clubs that will show interest in the man.
