Betis: Boudebouz medical, Garcia ‘close’

Montpellier playmaker Ryad Boudebouz is set to arrive in Seville on Monday night before completing his medical on Tuesday, say reports in Spain.

ABC de Sevilla lead on the reports that the 27-year-old is due to arrive in Andalusia on Monday ahead of undergoing medical tests at Los Verdiblancos.

The Algeria international is set to join Betis on a deal said to be worth €7m plus an additional €1m in variables to become their eighth signing of a busy summer.

Meanwhile it is also set to be a ‘decisive week’ for Zenit Saint Petersburg midfielder Javi Garcia, who was left out of his side’s match with Spartak Moscow this weekend.

The former Benfica and Manchester City player is set to return to southern Spain, where his family are based, and is ‘close’ to Betis but Malaga have not given up hope of landing the 30-year-old.
