Leicester to battle PSG, Sevilla and Lyon for Hatem Ben Arfa - Aulas


Hatem Ben Arfa
Hatem Ben Arfa has attracted attention from clubs across Europe after revitalising his career at Nice.
Premier League champions Leicester City have entered the race to sign France international Hatem Ben Arfa, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas believes.
Ben Arfa, 29, is in high demand after getting 17 league goals and six assists to help Nice finish fourth in Ligue 1.
This week Lyon, Paris Saint-Germain and Sevilla were confirmed as the favourites to sign the player after Nice admitted that they had given up hope of persuading him to sign a new contract.
 Ben Arfa is now a free agent and Aulas revealed that Lyon could face fresh competition in their bid to sign the former Newcastle attacker.

"With Ben Arfa it's a question of passion," Aulas said during an interview with Canal Plus on Tuesday. "He's close to our desire, our enthusiasm, our supporters.
"I really believe that he wants to come to Lyon. If he doesn't come, it would be for reasons that have nothing to do with passion.
"I think it's towards Leicester that things are happening. That's what people who spoke to him on the telephone this afternoon have told me."
