Lille: Ben Arfa, Botman… The focus of Létang on the LOSC transfer window

On the sidelines of the presentation of Edon Zhegrova this Saturday in Lille, the president of Losc Olivier Létang gave an update on the hot issues of the winter transfer window. And in particular on the possible arrival of Hatem Ben Arfa.

Things are moving in Lille. As Losc prepares to move onto the lawn of the Stade Vélodrome to challenge Olympique de Marseille on Sunday evening at the end of the 21 th day of Ligue 1, the Lille club is active behind the scenes on the transfer market. Having left for Fiorentina, Jonathan Ikoné has already been replaced. Aged 21 years, the Kosovar international Edon Zhegrova signed a four and a half year contract. But the winger who arrived from FC Basel could not be the only reinforcement for Jocelyn Gourvennec.

Hatem Ben Arfa, without a club and free since the end of his contract with the Girondins de Bordeaux last June, could also join the champions of France. After an agreement in principle was announced on Friday, the track was confirmed this Saturday by Olivier Létang. But an agreement is conditional on the departure of Yusuf Yazici. The Turkish international is in negotiations with CSKA Moscow.
