There is a report in Mundo Deportivo today that PSG have taken note of French International Ben Arfa’s lack of playing time at Newcastle, and may be considering a bid for the 26 year-old Newcastle winger.
Ben Arfa – PSG interested?
The Frenchmen was born in Clamart, which is a community in the southwestern suburbs of Paris, and in the past the 26 year-old has said he would like at some time to join his home town club.
The French report concentrates on Ben Arfa’s lack of playing time at Newcastle, and that it may be a good move by PSG to try to get the Frenchman back to France.
The report suggest a move could be made in January, but that has to be high;ly unlikely, but we think Newcastle may have a busy transfer window in the summer, with players both leaving and coming into the club.
Our view is that Ben Arfa is a match-winner, and we hope he is happy at Newcastle, and that given he’s not starting he will get chances as a substitute – because this lad has skills galore and can make the difference in a close game.
The report is stretching it a little bit on news that Hatem Ben Arfa wants to join PSG, and they quote the Frenchman saying he would one day like to join PSG, but that was after we were hammered 6-0 at home to Liverpool at the end of April.
But things have changed for Newcastle since that time, and we have beaten Manchester United away (for the first time since 1972 at Old Trafford), Tottenham away and Chelsea at home, and could be on track for another top six finish within two years.
