Report: Betis to sign Eibar’s Inui

Real Betis have agreed to sign Eibar midfielder Takashi Inui as a free agent this summer, according to reports in Spain.

The 29-year-old has spent three seasons at the Basque club since joining from Eintracht Frankfurt in 2015, but his contract now expires in June.

A host of Spanish media outlets, including Marca and Cadena Cope, report a deal has now been struck with the Seville-based club, following an initial report in Informa Betis last week.

The verbal agreement comes as the player is reportedly keen to make one more ‘big move’ in his career, having dismissed fresh contract talks despite initial optimism.

Inui has played 88 matches for Eibar and has grown into one of the side’s most important players but losing him as a free agent would represent a blow to the club.
