Liverpool have joined the race to sign Fabian Ruiz, with the Daily Express reporting that the Reds have put the Napoli midfielder at the top of their summer wishlist.
Fabian has a host of Europe’s biggest clubs chasing his signature. According to the Daily Express, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and Manchester United are all interested.
But the Express has suggested that Jurgen Klopp is keen to sign a new midfielder this summer. And that has prompted the Reds to put the Spain international near the top of his wishlist.
The 23-year-old has been superb during his time in Italy. As reported by Goal in 2019, he idolised Xavi growing up. And there are arguably some reminders of the Barcelona legend in his style of play.
He is superb on the ball. And he has shown that he has wonderful vision. But he also offers a lot of versatility, as he can play in central, holding or attacking midfield. He is also able to play out on the left.
Seeing Fabian at Anfield may prove quite tough for one Premier League boss in particular. The Spaniard moved to Stadio San Paolo during Carlo Ancelotti’s tenure, scoring seven goals during the Italian’s final full season at the club.
And some Liverpool fans may take further encouragement from comments the current Everton boss made about Fabian after a win back in February 2019.
“Fabian can do various roles and must certainly grow in many ways, he is young and very talented, he has to have fewer breaks and is gradually added to the team,” he told Napoli’s official website.
With the clubs linked with the youngster, it would certainly be a huge coup for the Reds if they could sign the midfielder this summer.
