According to L’Équipe, Premier League side Chelsea are the latest European giant to enquire about Hatem Ben Arfa’s availability this summer to the player’s entourage.
Ben Arfa is a free agent this summer and has already received formal contract offers from Atletico Madrid, Liverpool and AC Milan.
Other clubs to have contacted the Frenchman include Villarreal, Sevilla, Espanyol, Valencia, Wolfsburg and FC Porto.
Meanwhile in France, Lyon President Jean Michel Aulas confirmed his intention to hold discussions with Hatem Ben Arfa when the season comes to an end. PSG President Nasser Al Khelaifi has confirmed internally at the club that he is impressed with Ben Arfa, but there have been no cross-party contacts as of yet.
Ben Arfa’s priority is to join PSG, even though he promised OGC Nice that he would consider to stay at the club if they qualified for the Champions League.
