Dutch second division
PFC Levski Sofia
His great season with FC Zwolle was enough to be signed by Bulgarian side PFC Levski Sofia. Ars arrived in Sofia on 23 June 2011 and signed a three-year contract the next day. On 28 July 2011, in his official debut for Levski, he came on as a substitute and scored the winning goal for the 2:1 win over FC Spartak Trnava. Ars also netted a goal to open the scoring in the return leg, but Levski were eventually eliminated after losing the penalty shootout to decide the match (the aggregate score at the end of extra time was 3:3). On 6 November 2011, he scored a brace in the 3:2 home win over Loko Plovdiv in an A Group match.
In February 2012, Ars went to Chinese Super League side Tianjin Teda on loan. Tianjin Teda also had an option to make the move permanent in the end of the 2012 league season. He made his official debut for Tianjin on 25 February, in a 2–1 CFA Super Cup defeat against Guangzhou Evergrande.
After spells in Turkey, Ars returned to Holland to join NEC Nijmegen. He topped the Eerste Divisie top goalscorers charts at the end of the club's title winning 2014/15 season and moved on to NAC. In summer 2016, Ars left NAC Breda for Hungarian side Szombathelyi Haladás.
