Samassekou claims everyone will be talking about Liverpool, Barcelona target Fabian Ruiz

Hoffenheim star Diadie Samassekou says people will be talking about Fabian Ruiz in years to come.

Liverpool and Barcelona have already shown an interest in the Napoli star.

"That [hardest foe] was Fabian Ruiz of Napoli, even if he is perhaps not so well known," Samassekou told Goal.

"It was incredibly difficult to defend against him because he is extremely agile and only ever needs two touches.

"I sometimes try to show my friends why it's so hard to defend. I've played against a lot of good teams and players, but people will be talking a lot about Ruiz in the next few years."
