Liverpool on outside as Spurs in talks with Newcastle's Ben Arfa

Tottenham are challenging Liverpool for Newcastle United midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa.

Infosport + says Ben Arfa has already begun conducting talks with Tottenham despite Newcastle having three games left this season and the threat of relegation.

Ben Arfa has suffered an injury plagued season at Newcastle, but that hasn't stopped the Frenchman being strongly linked with Liverpool.
