Liverpool have revived their interest in Newcastle United midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa.

L'Equipe says Liverpool have made another approach for Ben Arfa and are hoping to persuade the star to switch to Anfield.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has told the Frenchman he wants to build his playing system around him.

The 26-year-old endured an injury-plagued season last year, being struck down by a persistent hamstring injury, before returning to score a decisive penalty against QPR.
