Ben Arfa drops Sevilla hint

Paris Saint-Germain forward Hatem Ben Arfa has dropped a hint that he could join Sevilla in the summer.

The Frenchman was on the verge of moving to Estadio Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan last summer, but he eventually decided to accept a lucrative offer from Parc des Princes.

Ben Arfa has since lived to regret his decision and is now considering his options due to the lack of playing time.

The attacking midfielder is a player who can only give his best when he is given absolute freedom on the pitch and he believes that he would work well with current Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli.

“Many coaches are persuaded by the idea of inventing on the football pitch and their pretext is to try and block the opposition system. With them, there is no joy,” Ben Arfa told France Football.

“Bielsa, Sampaoli. There is a lot of discipline, the work is hard, but they leave open the possibility of unpredictability.”

This is enough to suggest that Ben Arfa would enjoy working with Sevilla boss Jorge Sampaoli and los Rojiblancos would probably welcome the Frenchman with open arms.

After scoring impressive 17 goals in 34 appearances for Nice last term, the forward has yet to register a goal in 23 league outings for PSG.
