Newcastle attacker Hatem Ben Arfa is being linked with a move to Anfield in the summer following his fall out at St James' Park.
The 27-year-old has already stated he would like to stay at Newcastle but he has been cast out by boss Alan Pardew after a fall out between the pair and has apparently been banned from first team training.
Liverpool were linked with him last summer but he chose to stay with Newcastle, although Brendan Rodgers may well move again with a fee of £6m said to be enough to land him.
Reds boss Rodgers will be looking to add to his squad for next season as he prepares for a Champions League assault but Ben Arfa would arrive with something of a reputation of being disruptive and it remains to be seen if the Reds boss wants to add that sort of player to his squad.
