Leicester City 'in pole position to sign Hatem Ben Arfa'

Premier League champions Leicester City reportedly emerge as the frontrunners to sign free agent Hatem Ben Arfa this summer.

Leicester City are reportedly leading the race to sign free agent Hatem Ben Arfa this summer.

The 29-year-old suffered a miserable stay in England with Newcastle United and Hull City, but enjoyed a career revival by helping Nice to a fourth-place finish in Ligue 1 last season.

His contract with the French outfit expired at the end of the campaign, though, and his availability on a free transfer has made him one of the most sought-after players in Europe.

Reports yesterday suggested that Sevilla were on the verge of completing a deal to sign the playmaker, but Canal+ now reports that Premier League champions Leicester are in pole position for his signature.

Ben Arfa is thought to be keen on a move to Paris Saint-Germain, although the French champions are yet to make a formal bid for the player.
