Cherfa was born in Toulouse, France. A Toulouse FC youth graduate, he appeared sparingly for the first team during the 2006–07 season in Ligue 1, subsequently serving a stint with third division club Tours FC.
On 26 June 2008, Cherfa moved to Spain and joined Gimnàstic de Tarragona in the second level on a two-year contract. On 23 June 2010, having been sparingly used during his tenure, he signed a 1+1 deal with another side in that country and category, Girona FC.
In late December 2010, without having appeared in any competitive matches for Girona, Cherfa terminated his link with the Catalans and signed for Albacete Balompié, also in the Spanish division two. On 16 August of the following year, he agreed to a two-year deal with Algerian Ligue Professionnelle 1 side MC Alger.
