Hatem Ben Arfa Looking to Move away from Marseille

Olympique Marseille winger Hatem Ben Arfa is now reportedly planning to leave the French club to join somewhere else. Reports available in the media suggest that a host of clubs including Everton, Newcastle United, Werder Bremen, AC Milan, Wolfsburg and Galatasaray are keen to secure his service.

The France international has spent two successful seasons with Marseille since his move from Lyon in 2008. Hatem Ben Arfa has represented Marseille in 86 matches in all competition and scored 13 goals. However, the 23-year-old is yet to secure a regular place in France national team.

Naturally, the left winger is now looking for a bigger challenge. His agent Michael Ouazine has also said that his client could leave Marseille only on sporting ground, nothing else. The most important thing is that Ben Arfa has been out of favor of Marseille coach Didier Deschamps.

Newcastle United, the newly promoted premier league club, is all set to talk to Marseille over a possible deal for Hatem Ben Arfa. Everton boss David Moyes is also keen to sign the player who would command a fee around £5 million.

At the moment, these two Premier League sides are ahead in the race to secure his service. However, the clubs like AC Milan, Werder Bremen and Wolfsburg could also sign Hatem Ben Arfa by making a surprise offer in the last minute.
