In the pipes for a few hours, the arrival of Hatem Ben Arfa at LOSC is becoming clearer. Details of his contract have just been leaked.
Everything is closed between Ben Arfa and LOSC
After its sluggish first half of the season, Lille OSC will make changes during the winter transfer window. LOSC has already sold Jonathan Ikoné for 14 million euros to Fiorentina. Thiago Maia was definitively transferred to Flamengo against 4 million. The northern club has just secured the services of the Kosovar nugget Edon Zhegrova for 7 million. In addition to this arrival, the reigning French champion should strike a resounding blow this winter by recruiting Hatem Ben Arfa. According to The Team everything would already be closed for the signing of HBA in Lille. The sports daily even believes that the 34-year-old attacking midfielder has already signed a six-month contract with the Mastiffs.
One last hurdle before the formalization of HBA
The newspaper even assures that Hatem Ben Arfa has already taken up residence in the North pending the announcement of the Lille OSC. LOSC should not make an official announcement before the departure of Yusuf Yazici. In decline since the end of last season, the Turkish attacking midfielder should leave Lille this winter. Except surprise, the Turkish international should join the Russian capital. Number 11 Lille interests CSKA Moscow, current 4th in the Russian Premier League.
The resident of Pierre-Mauroy therefore awaits a departure from Yazici before formalizing the signing of HBA. He has been free since leaving the Girondins de Bordeaux at the end of last season. Although without a club, the player passed by Nice, Rennes or even Paris Saint-Germain continued to speak with a physical trainer. According to the same source, Lille’s next recruit could be operational on February 6 when they receive PSG.
