Recently we reported that Liverpool are interested in signing Nice winger Hatem Ben Arfa. The former Newcastle striker, following his disappointing spells with Newcastle and Hull City, seemed to have turned his career around and has scored 16 goals in Ligue 1 this season.
His performances have surely caught the attention of some major clubs as French publication L’Equipe are now claiming that Chelsea have joined Liverpool in the pursuit of the 27-year-old.
According to the report, the Blues have already contacted the player’s representatives to discuss a possibility of a summer move.
Meanwhile, Liverpool striker Christian Benteke has been linked with a shock move to West Bromwich Albion. The Belgian international arrived at Anfield in a £32.5 million from Aston Villa last summer, but his performances this season have left a lot to be desired.
