World Football Rumours
According to the report, “Real Betis are eyeing Leicester City striker Ayoze Perez. AS says Betis are ready to move for the Spaniard as Borja Iglesias’ future is now in doubt. Borja is being linked with Atletico Madrid as a replacement for Joao Felix, who is set to join Chelsea this week. Should the deal go through, Atletico will seek to sign Borja to fill the void. And in the process, Betis will move for Perez in order to replace their star striker.”
Considering they don’t have a big budget, Betis will have to be smart with the signings in the transfer window. If Real Betis can tie up a cheap deal for the player, it may not be a bad signing by any means.
It is claimed that Leicester are open to letting Ayoze Perez go.
Good signing for Real Betis?
Ayoze Perez stands as an excellent option for Real Betis. He has all the skillset required to be a success story at Betis. Therefore, it makes sense for Pellegrini to step up his attempts to bring the Spanish striker to La Liga side.
How strong that interest is and whether Betis will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
