Barcelona, Atletico Madrid interested in Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz

Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are interested in Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz.

AS says Ruiz is looking to leave Napoli, with Barcelona and Atletico both in the hunt for his signature.

The Spain midfielder, who is part of Luis Enrique's Euro 2020 squad, shone in Serie A last season despite Napoli just missing out on a Champions League place by one point as Juventus pipped them to the post before Gennaro Gattuso was replaced by Luciano Spalletti late last month.

However, Ruiz has rejected two offers to extend his stay at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium beyond 2023, when his current deal runs out.

Barca and Atleti are both prepared to offer €45million (£39m) for the former Real Betis midfielder, while Napoli are looking for a bid of €60m (£52m).
