Fiorentina are in talks to complete a deal for Hatem Ben Arfa, who is a free agent after leaving Rennes in the summer.
How would fans feel about him returning to Newcastle? We could do worse.
The 32-year old helped the Ligue One side win the French Cup after beating former club PSG in the final in May but it was then announced that he would not be staying beyond the season.
A whole host of clubs, including Turkish giants Fenerbahce, had been keen on signing the former Newcastle United winger.
But Gianluca Di Marzio from Sky Italia says Fiorentina have held talks with the Frenchman and could make him their second free transfer this summer following the arrival of Franck Ribery after he left Bayern Munich.
