El Gol Digital is reporting that Ayoze Perez’s move to Real Betis is “imminent.”

The Spanish rumour mongers are not the most reliable source, and the reaction to the story has been met with a great deal of derision among fans.

Here is some of the reaction on Twitter:

Verdict:

El Gol reporter Fernando Jarama’s report isn’t actually purely about our no.17. The basis of the story is about Real Sociedad’s search for a new striker to help out Willian Jose (a reported past Newcastle target).

Betis forward Tonny Sanabria is the player they are supposed to be interested in, and the reporter is already making the assumption that Ayoze will be coming in to replace the Paraguayan.

No other Spanish publication is carrying the story that Perez will be making the switch back to Spain, so it’s best to treat the claim with a high amount of scepticism.

The striker has hit a rich vein of form in front of goal in recent weeks, with three goals and one assist in his last three Premier League outings.
