French TV Claims Spurs Have Opened Talks With Liverpool Target Ben Arfa

French TV are reporting that Tottenham Hotspur have opened talks with Newcastle United winger and Liverpool target Hatem Ben Arfa, according to the Express.

Despite the transfer window being closed there is still plenty of gossip doing the rounds in the newspapers so we’ll keep you up-to-date with the latest transfer rumours. Today, Spurs are linked with Liverpool target Hatem Ben Arfa.

Hatem Ben Arfa

French TV are reporting that Tottenham Hotspur have opened talks with Newcastle United winger and Liverpool target Hatem Ben Arfa, according to the Express.

The French attacker has endured another injury-plagued season at St James’ Park and was recently criticised by Newcastle fans for wearing a Paris Saint-Germain kit to a Tyneside health resort.

Ben Arfa has been restricted to just 53 games for the Geordies since making the move from Marseille in 2010 due to a succession of injuries. However, when he’s managed to keep himself fit, he’s shown his quality on the pitch and has scored 10 goals  and provided 10 assists during those 53 appearances.

The Express claims the France international has been strongly linked with moves to Liverpool and PSG in recent months but it seems Tottenham may have stolen a march on the pair with French TV channel Infosport+ reporting that the north Londoners have opened talks with the 26-year-old’s representatives over a summer move to White Hart Lane.

It would be something of a surprise if these reports are accurate, given the fact Newcastle still have three vital games left this season as they continue to try and avoid relegation from the Premiership, and they make no reference to the two clubs agreeing a fee or Spurs being given permission by Newcastle to speak with their player. So I would take this as nothing more than speculation at this point.
