West Ham United are reportedly interested in signing Paris Saint-Germain outcast Hatem Ben Arfa in the January transfer window, but could that spell the end of Robert Snodgrass' Hammers days?

The Daily Mail claim former Newcastle United trickster Ben Arfa is interesting the Hammers, along with Premier League rivals Leicester City, with the French giants willing to let the attacker leave on a free transfer.

The 30-year-old has failed to make a single appearance for Unai Emery's side this season, with the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar, Julian Draxler and Angel Di Maria keeping the 15-time France international on the sidelines.

That has alerted the Hammers, who are in desperate need of some degree of attacking tenacity in the final third as they look to avoid relegation to the Championship come May 2018.

Scotland international Snodgrass has been in excellent form for Championship side Aston Villa after joining the Midlands giants on a season-long loan from the Hammers in the summer.

The set-piece specialist has had a hand in seven Villa goals during 14 outings, scoring three himself against Burton Albion and a brace against Preston North End as well as turning provider on another four occasions.

The 30-year-old has a contract at the London Stadium until the summer of 2020, but with his future already in doubt after leaving on loan - surely his Hammers days are over if David Moyes opts to sign Ben Arfa, despite his Villa form?

Snodgrass remains behind the likes of Marko Arnautovic, Diafra Sakho, Arthur Masuaku and Andre Ayew, and with Ben Arfa thrown into the mix, Snodgrass can forget about reforging any kind of career in east London.

It should see the former Leeds United and Norwich City ace consider a move away from the club in the coming transfer windows, as he looks to get the best out of his remaining years in professional football.
