Newcastle United playmaker Hatem Ben Arfa has revealed that he turned down a move to Chelsea in the summer but would consider leaving the Magpies this month.
The 25-year-old was heavily linked with a transfer away from St James' Park in the summer, but chose to stay after they recorded an impressive fifth-place finish in the Premier League last season.
Despite previously deciding against a move away from the North-East, Ben Arfa has suggested that he would reconsider his options now and has cited Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool as possible destinations.
"I am interested by Chelsea, Arsenal and Liverpool. Today, these clubs are over Newcastle," Ben Arfa told BeIn Sport.
"During the summer, there was contact with Chelsea. But I wanted to stay in Newcastle. Whoever tasted England, it's hard to go elsewhere. There is everything to be happy."
Ben Arfa has also admitted that it would be "a dream" if he returned to play in Ligue 1 for childhood club Paris Saint-Germain.
