Sevilla will complete the signing of Hatem Ben Arfa by the end of the week, Goal understands.

The 29-year-old, who is out of contract after leaving Nice this summer, has agreed a three-year contract and will receive a signing-on fee in excess of €10 million.

Ben Arfa’s preferred destination was to Paris Saint-Germain but the French champions have not submitted an offer for one of Ligue 1’s standout stars last season.

Ben Arfa was the catalyst in a Nice side that finished fourth in Ligue 1, scoring 17 goals and registering six assists.

But despite his impressive form, it was not enough to secure a place in France’s final Euro 2016 squad.

The former Newcastle United midfielder will link up with Jorge Sampaoli, who was confirmed as Sevilla’s new coach on Monday.
