Liverpool join Fabian Ruiz race

Liverpool, Real Madrid and Barcelona are entering an €80m bidding war for Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz, according to reports.

The Spain international has long been a target for the two big La Liga clubs, but now the Sunday Express maintains Jurgen Klopp has also set his sights on him.

Liverpool got to see Fabian Ruiz up close in the Champions League group stage, when Napoli earned a 2-0 win at the Stadio San Paolo and drew the second leg 1-1 at Anfield.

The Partenopei paid €30m to get Fabian Ruiz from Real Betis in the summer of 2018 and he turns 24 next month.

According to OK Diario in Spain, Fabian has already given his word to Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane, so would prefer them to Barcelona.

Napoli are making the most of the situation and jacking the price-tag up to circa €80m.
