    Relocating, but only if...

    Hi there!

    What would fit better? Any other suggestions besides the following?

    He's willing to relocate if a good opportunity comes up / arises / appears...

    Cheers,
    Tito

    Not even for the sake of readability?

    No. Using incorrect spacing around punctuation doesn't make it more readable for native speakers. It actually makes it less readable because we notice the errors.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
