L’Équipe have provided an update on the future of free agent 32-year-old attacking midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa.
Real Betis made a loose enquiry before the end of last season, but have not followed up concretely, contrary to Leganes and Espanyol, with the latter side being HBA’s personal preference as they are offering Europa League football.
It is with Spanish clubs that talks are most advanced, as this is Ben Arfa’s desired destination owing to the style of play.
Eintracht Frankfurt and Gladbach have also made enquiries in Germany, as have both Los Angeles clubs in the MLS.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic is understood to have spoken with the LA Galaxy board about bringing HBA in, which is a mouth-watering prospect for all involved.
