Wolves should move for free agent Hatem Ben Arfa this summer

Wolves should move for free agent Hatem Ben Arfa this summer

Since the Daily Mail reported upon Hatem Ben Arfa’s announcement that he would be leaving PSG this summer at the end of his contract, the Frenchman is yet to find a new club.

Ben Arfa has endured a torrid time with the Ligue 1 giants recently, having not kicked a ball for the Parisian outfit since the 2016/17 season.

Now the 31-year-old has the opportunity to begin a new chapter of his career and return to playing regular football. 

Plenty of clubs around Europe and beyond will be interested in picking up the ex-Newcastle man on a free transfer this summer. Of all the Premier League sides who should be pushing for his signature though, Wolves would perhaps be the best fit for Ben Arfa.

The Breakdown

Newly promoted Wolves have made several eye-catching acquisitions in recent transfer windows, not least this summer’s captures of Rui Patricio and Diogo Jota. 

With the array of exciting and dynamic attacking options now at Nuno Espirito Santo’s disposal, perhaps all that is now needed at Molineux is a top class playmaker to tie them all together.

Ben Arfa, an affordable if admittedly short term solution, would be a great addition to this current Wolves side. The injection of technical excellence and Premier League experience that his arrival would bring could be the final piece of their forward line puzzle. 

Transfermarkt value the France international at £4.5 million, which highlights what a bargain it would be for Wolves to pick him up on a free. This chance to bring a player of such pedigree to Molineux isn’t one that Nuno can afford to miss.
