Speaking to MaLigue2, Ligue 2 side Le Havre President Vincent Volpe confirmed that the club had not given up on the possibility of signing free agent and 32-year-old attacking midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa.
He is “open, honest, transparent and nice,” according to Volpe.
“We have thought about him. I have had contacts with him… He wanted to quit France. I did not share his opinion in that regard… he loves Paul Le Guen and the feeling is mutual. It is not impossible that he continues to play in France, even in Ligue 2 with us… I must admit that it is more difficult now, as the season is passing by. There are contacts, there have been contacts. I have respect for him and I like him a lot.”
