Hatem Ben Arfa in talks with Almeria, wants a Lyon offer

TF1 report that 32-year-old free agent attacking midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa is hoping to receive a proposal from Lyon in the coming days, despite receiving no concrete information that OL have an intention of making one.

L’Équipe and RMC confirmed last month that the Lyon board was considering internally a move HBA, but that no contact has yet occurred.

The last time that Ben Arfa played a football match was 12th May 2019, and the only concrete discussions that the player is currently undertaking is with Spanish 2nd division side Almeria. The Liga Adelante club want to sign him quickly, although nothing has been agreed. Contract talks have not even seriously begun between the two parties.

The Spanish team were recently purchased by Turki Al-Sheikh, who has provided the club with considerable financial potential.
