We heard these stories yesterday and wondered if there was any truth in them but there is news that Ben Arfa may be acquired by AC Milan in a part exchange deal.
Ben Arfa – off to Italy?
Marseilles midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa could be on his way to Italy, and that’s according to the Corriere dello Sport, who say that top club AC Milan are trying to work out a deal with the French club that will allow them to capture the 23 year-old midfielder.
As we all know Ben Arfa went on strike late last week, after his proposed loan move to Newcastle was called off by the Marseilles club, but he returned to Marseilles yesterday and now awaits his fate.
The reports suggest the Italian club is ready to offer Klaas-Jan Huntelaar for Ben Arfa in a part-exchange deal.
But we have no idea if this report is true, and only yesterday there were similar stories floating around, but in that case the Italian club was said to be Inter Milan who were interested in the young Frenchman.
As this story drifts away from Newcastle being able to capture the youngster, so will our interest in this saga.
