Former Newcastle United winger Hatem Ben Arfa is a man in demand again – with Liverpool and Chelsea among the teams weighing up bids for the Frenchman.

Ben Arfa has been a revelation at Nice since joining them at the start of the season, firing 16 goals including a number of spectacular solo efforts.

That has seen the France international linked with a number of clubs, including Paris St-Germain.

And now Liverpool and Chelsea have entered the chase for the 29-year-old, according to reports.

French newspaper L’Equipe claim that he has already received contract offers from Atletico Madrid and AC Milan, who will battle it out with PSG, Liverpool and now Chelsea for the attacker.
