Chelsea, Man Utd target Ben Arfa up for sale at Lyon

Olympique Lyon chiefs admit they're ready to sell Hatem Ben Arfa for £11 million.

Chelsea and Manchester United have been linked with Ben Arfa in the French press this week and Lyon chief Bernardo Lacombe said: "For now, I cannot tell you much. There is interest, that's all."

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas went further, declaring: "He started with two proposals: one to renew his contract, the other to leave for the amount needed for his signing. That is £11 million. This is exactly what Marseille are willing to pay.

"I do not want to say more because with l'OM it is always a little difficult to negotiate with. But if Hatem wants to stay, we would welcome him with open arms."
