SERIE A - An English club ready to make a move for Napoli's star
Arsenal could allegedly move for Napoli star Fabian Ruiz next year. The 25-year-old star, who has been consistently linked with transfers to Barcelona and Real Madrid, has netted 17 goals and registered 12 assists in 137 matches for Napoli since making the switch from Real Betis in 2018.
A recent report stated that Los Blancos were planning to swoop for the Spain international in 2022, but according to a report by football.london, the Gunners have emerged as genuine contenders for the player’s signature.
The north Londoners are reportedly planning to move for a new player for their midfield in one of the upcoming transfer markets, with manager Mikel Arteta believing that he is still short in that zone of the field.
Fabian has again been a key player for I Partenopei at the start of the 2021-22 term, contributing two goals and two assists in nine games in all competitions.
His existing contract in Naples is due to expire in the summer of 2023, though, and it remains to be seen whether Luciano Spalletti’s side can sign the player to an extension.
