Akihito Fujii submitted paperwork in order to exercise his FA option today. There's still a possibility Fujii will return to the Eagles next season, but he wants to hear what clubs think of him.
Said Fujii, "I want to field offers from other clubs. I don't want any regrets. I decided to exercise the option because it was something my family also supports."
The Seibu Lions and Orix Buffaloes are apparently interested in Fujii.
