Asprilla believes Ben Arfa can be the best player in the Premier League.
He told the Evening Chronicle: "Hatem has been the star man for most people this season - and rightly so.
"He is destined to be one of the best players in the Premier League.
"Watching Ben Arfa develop this season has been very exciting.
"His early career at the club was blighted with injury and he has been the star man for me this season too."
