Hatem Ben Arfa, Goals: 16 Price: 0. Get on his case Milan!

11 April at 14:33
It's been a heck of a season for Hatem Ben Arfa. Sold to Nice after a disappointing time in England, the French international's return to France has seen him net 16 goals in 29 games.

Yesterday, the former Newcastle midfielder scored his first career hat-trick against Rennes, helping Le Gym leapfrog the Bretons into third place in Ligue 1. 

At this point it's truly worth asking why this man shouldn't be given a chance to prove himself in Italy. He seems to have discovered a new lease of life this year, and his contract expires at the end of the season.

Specifically, AC Milan, Inter and Roma have made a habit of picking up the scraps from the EPL's table, but Adriano Galliani in particular has been very good at picking up players on expiring deals, like Tomasson, Cafu and Van Bommel.

Ben Arfa could choose the "easy" money offered him by PSG, and the chance to win titles in Ligue 1. 

Check out his highlights from yesterday below, skip to 2:39:

What about this ridiculous early season goal (he scored screamer after screamer early on)?

Remember, this man has helped a club like OGC Nice compete for the Champions League, when the club (which is respectable and has a new stadium) had only previously dreamt of Europa League football. 

Before you leave, here is Ben Arfa helping the Gym dismantle Bordeaux.
