Liverpool are allegedly interested in landing highly-rated Napoli and Spain midfielder Fabian Ruiz.

The Anfield side have previously been mentioned with the 25-year-old star and could be about to renew their pursuit amidst competition from La Liga outfit Real Madrid and Barcelona.

He has been in outstanding form this campaign in Serie A and is understood to be prepared for the next step in a brilliant career to date, that is according to a report from a Spanish news outlet Fichajes.

The report adds the Reds ‘want to sign’ the player as manager Jurgen Klopp continues to look for a long-term Georginio Wijnaldum replacement.

Thus far in 2021/22 the star has netted five and added three assists in 18 outings across all competitions.

Securing the services of the player, who is under contract in Naples until June 2023, would still represent a costly outlay for the time being.

However, soon enough Partenopei may fear losing their midfield player for nothing and will likely be prepared to negotiate freely.

Having already sustained multiple injuries in the midfield area and with Thiago, James Milner and Jordan Henderson all over 30, adding another interesting option has to be at the forefront of Jurgen’s thoughts.
