Tricky, skilful and confident, Hatem Ben Arfa would add another dimension to Liverpool’s attack.
Had it not been for injuries, the Frenchman would surely have made even more of an impact on the Premier League than he already has. With Newcastle struggling domestically, he could be tempted to move on this summer, and Brendan Rodgers is reportedly highly interested in bringing him to Anfield. Able to operate on either flank or behind the striker, the 26-year-old fits the Reds’ system perfectly, and has the ability to create a fearsome on-field relationship with Luis Suarez.
A deal could be made easier by the presence of Andy Carroll, a player whom Newcastle are keen to take back to St James’ Park.
