Italian giants monitoring out of favour Newcastle star

Roma could make a possible offer for Hatem Ben Arfa, with the midfielder looking for a way out Newcastle after speculations of a failed relationship with current manager Alan Pardew, TalkSPORT reports.

The French winger has only one year left on his current contract but could be looking to leave earlier after recently failing to be included in the team selections, making only four starts this calendar year.

The Italian club will need to prepare replacements for both Kevin Strootman and Miralem Pjanic, who have attracted interests for their fine performances this season.

The 27-year-old reportedly stated on his Instagram account that Pardew didn’t pick him for the squad to travel and face Arsenal, indicating signs of a failed relationship between him and his manager.

Ben Arfa has made a total of 27 appearances this season, 14 of them from the bench, scoring three goals and providing three assists after joining The Magpies from French side Marseille back in 2010.
