5 years ago

Hatem Ben Arfa has been approached by three different clubs this week.

France Football report that the former Newcastle playmaker has now had further contact from PSG and they are putting their cards on the table.

Hatem Ben Arfa would be guaranteed medals at the club from the capital, having won last season’s Ligue 1 by a ridiculous margin of 31 points.

However, part of the negotiations revolve around how much game time PSG will be prepared to guarantee.

As well as Lyon’s longstanding very public interest in signing Ben Arfa, two other clubs have made their move this week.

France Football say that their information is that Europa League winners Sevilla have made an 0ffer to the free agent, including the chance to play Champions League football due to their defeat of Liverpool.

Leicester City are the other club named in the report, with the Premier League Champions also able to offer Champions League football and now looking for a replacement for Riyad Mahrez, who is looking very likely to leave now.

Despite have such a great season with them, Hatem Ben Arfa is understood to have no interest in staying at Nice, despite the club offering a much improved contract.
