Betis looking to sign Marseille’s Darío Benedetto on loan

RMC Sport report tonight that Darío Benedetto could be set to leave Marseille for La Liga outfit Real Betis, with the striker seemingly destined for a move away.

With Arkadiusz Milik confirmed as this season’s starting striker, manager Jorge Sampaoli is now unlikely to afford Benedetto much playing time despite holding his compatriot in esteem. As a result, Betis are working to define the terms of a loan deal, while the striker hopes to experience a full Vélodrome for the last time, during OM’s match against Bordeaux tomorrow.

The forward is in search of playing time, and a move to Andalusia appears to fit the bill – European football, a city where multiple Argentines play and a manager rates him in Manuel Pellegrini.

The 31-year-old has been with Marseille for the last two campaigns, scoring 11 league goals in his first season before a less prolific second year with five strikes. The Argentina international had previously been with Tijuana, Club América and Boca Juniors.
