Roma have emerged as suitors for Olympique Lyon wing ace Hatem Ben Arfa.

The youngster has Olympique Marseille and Arsenal chasing his signature this summer, however L'Equipe says Roma could move to the head of the queue by making Amantino Mancini available.

Lyon failed to prise Mancini away from Roma during the winter market, but could use Ben Arfa in a swap offer to land the exciting Brazilian.
