Arsene WengerArfa mo!: Arsenal ready to fight Chelsea for Toon winger
Arsenal have emerged as rivals to Chelsea's interest in Hatem Ben Arfa.
The 25-year-old Newcastle winger has been on the Champions League winners' radar for some time after an impressive campaign last season.
But Arsenal, whose summer reshuffle has seen them buy Cologne striker Lukas Podolski and line up Montpellier striker Olivier Giroud, are now contenders, too.
Ben Arfa is believed to have welcomed the interest, as he fears he would not play regularly if he were to trade Tyneside for Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have already clinched the signings of midfielders Eden Hazard of Lille and Marko Marin of Werder Bremen for next season, to join the likes of Juan Mata and Frank Lampard.
Ben Arfa, who is currently on Euro 2012 duty with France in Polkraine, joined Newcastle on loan from Marseille in August 2010.
The move becoming permanent soon after, even though he was out with a badly broken leg.
He returned to first-team action last September after almost a full year on the sidelines.
Ben Arfa made 32 appearances for the Magpies as they played their way to an unlikely Europa League spot when many observers had tipped them for relegation.
As his match fitness improved, he became more of threat, scoring all six of his goals for the season between Boxing Day and the end of the campaign - including a Goal-of-the-Season contender dribble from his own half against Bolton.
Do you guys know if they're going to show the Asian Tour games on TV or online? I could have sworn they showed some games on GolTV or something. 99% sure there's going to be a stream up somewhere. Either way, I can't wait! Need mah Arsenal fix.
As things stand, in addition to Wilshere and Jenkinson, 17 further members* of the first-team squad, those who were not involved in the European Championships, are due to return to London Colney on July 9th, with this group including returning loanees Joel Campbell, Vito Mannone, Ryo Miyaichi and Carlos Vela. Furthermore, Wojciech Szczesny, Nicklas Bendtner, Robin van Persie and Andrey Arshavin, whose countries all exited the tournament at the group stage, should be ready to return on the same date, by which time they will have concluded their three week rest period.
Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Per Mertesacker, Laurent Koscielny, Tomas Rosicky and Lukas Podolski remain active in the competition and will return to Arsenal three weeks after their respective countriesí involvement in Poland and Ukraine is over.
In addition to those mentioned, Bacary Sagna should be available again by the Asia Tour comes around after suffering from a broken leg, although Lukasz Fabianski may spend a longer period out and Emmanuel Frimpong is not expected back until September or October following his injury.
For the Reserves, 26 players and a further 19 scholars are set to return in the next few weeks, but Zak Ansah will remain sidelined until at least August.
* Other players due back on July 9th- Thomas Vermaelen, Kieran Gibbs, Alex Song, Mikel Arteta, Gervinho, Vito Mannone, Abou Diaby, Aaron Ramsey, Marouane Chamakh, Andre Santos, Ju Young Park, Sebastien Squillaci, Francis Coquelin, Ryo, Johan Djourou, Joel Campbell. Ė Denilson may return slightly later as his loan spell with Sao Paulo is still ongoing.
Robin van Persie is now expected travel to Arsenalís pre-season tour of Asia as the club stand firm in their attempts to keep the striker.
The Gunners skipperís involvement in the summer trip to Malaysia, China and Hong Kong was unclear due to Hollandís involvement in Euro 2012.
But their shock early exit from the competition means Van Persie will now join the rest of his team-mates on tour.

Signing Podolski, loaning Ramsey and then signing Giroud -- Arsene Wenger is a possessed based god!
