Arsene Wenger is known for mentoring players and developing them into World Class athletes. We can find many examples throughout his career, the most famous being Cesc Fabregas and Thierry Henry.
Arsenal do need a quality wide player especially if the German Lukas Podolski takes the exit route. Wenger has a knack of signing French players and Ben Arfa is someone really talented but inconsistent and under right management he would definitely turn into a World Class player.
Ben Arfa has struggled with form this season and has lost out on playing time under Pardew, who cited his poor fitness as the reason why he was not playing more for the English side.
However, that does not seem to bother the Serie A side, nore Arsenal, who have now emerged as a potential new home for the former Marseille man.
French media Les Transferts claim that the Gunners could make a summer move with boss Arsene Wenger keen to bring the best out of Ben Arfa at the Emirates.
The 27-year-old has made 86 appearances for Newcastle since arriving in 2010.
