It’s half-time for the transfer window now, and the surprise info has just been released in Ligue 1.
Totally forgotten since his transparent passage to Bordeaux, Hatem Ben Arfa has found a Ligue 1 club where he has not yet played. According to L’Equipe, Lille would be thinking of him for the second part of the season, especially in the very likely event that Yusuf Yazici would be loaned. The Turkish striker fails to win at the Mastiffs, and is announced on departure for this month of January in the transfer window. Russian club CSKA Moscow has been following him closely for a few weeks, and this could lead to a loan with an option to buy. A new start for LOSC, which has already sold Jonathan Ikoné, and must not weaken too much for the second part of the season, with the Champions League against Chelsea on the program.

This is why the northern leaders are thinking of soliciting Hatem Ben Arfa. At 34, the native of Clamart has already played in Lyon, Marseille, PSG, Nice, Rennes and Bordeaux, and his Tour de France is obviously not over yet. It would be a real shot, certainly not too risky with a six-month contract, that the northern club would like to attempt. However, it will remain to know the state of form of Ben Arfa, who has not been specially courted lately, and always takes a long time before regaining his physical means. Not to mention that the negotiations can sometimes be long before his entourage. But in any case, the LOSC is preparing to act when necessary with an attacking midfielder who knows Ligue 1 like his pocket.
