West Bromwich Albion are the joint-favourites to land mercurial Frenchman Hatem Ben Arfa from PSG this summer with Bet Victor.

Ben Arfa looks almost certain to leave PSG at the end of the season, after failing to make a single appearance this season.

It is rather surprising to see West Brom leading the way for his signature though.

Paris Saint-Germain's French midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa attends a team's training session on November 16, 2017 in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, near Paris.

Ben Arfa is on a large contract at PSG, and West Brom could struggle to pay his wages.

However, the bookies feel that there is a chance that he could end up at the Hawthorns.

West Brom are considered an 8/1 shot, alongside Everton and Newcastle United in the race to sign the play maker.

If Albion were to land Ben Arfa he would immediately become one of the most dangerous attackers in the entirety of the Championship.

Ben Arfa has previously spent time in English football, when he represented both Newcastle United and Hull City, before moving back to France.
