Lyon and Besiktas have joined the long list of clubs interested in signing Nice hotshot Hatem Ben Arfa this summer. The France international has been in sublime form for the French side this term, and this has caught the radar of top European clubs including Liverpool.



Ben Arfa joined Nice last summer following a dismal spell with Newcastle United which saw him dropped to the reserves. Since then, he has got his career back on track in his homeland, and this has earned him plaudits from the media.

French publication Le 10 Sport claims that Besiktas have offered a mega-money offer to the player's agent in a bid to lure the 28-year-old to Istanbul.

On the other hand, Lyon have also expressed their desire to land Ben Arfa, and there could well be a transfer tussle for the player's signature this summer.

Ben Arfa has notched 11 goals and two assists for Nice this campaign.
