Arsenal keen on signing €55m-rated Spain international

Arsenal will allegedly rival Barcelona and Real Madrid for the signature of Napoli star Fabian Ruiz during this summer’s transfer market.

The 25-year-old star has again been a key player for his Italian side this season, making 30 appearances across all competitions, registering six goals and four assists in the process.


He has entered the final 18 months of his current deal in Naples, though, and there has been plenty of speculation surrounding his long-term future in the latest months.

According to a report from Il Corriere dello Sport, the Gunners are determined to land the Spain international in the summer, with the Londoners able to land his services for as little as £25 million.

However, the same report claims that Blaugrana and Los Blancos are also planning swoops for the player in the upcoming market.

Fabian, who has also been mentioned with Manchester United, has netted 21 times and picked up 14 assists in 158 appearances for his team since arriving from Real Betis four seasons ago.

Mikel Arteta’s side are currently in charge of the fourth position in the Premier League standings, with the capital outfit battling to secure a return to the UEFA Champions League for next term.
