Arsenal to move for Napoli midfielder?


Fabian Ruiz news

Ruiz wanted by Arsenal?

Arsenal could reportedly pursue the services of Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz next summer.



The Gunners signed Albert Sambi Lokonga from Anderlecht this summer, but they were widely fancied to sign another top-class midfielder.

It was anticipated that Granit Xhaka was leaving the club, but in the end, he stayed put and signed a new long-term contract.

According to football.london, the Gunners could address their midfield department next summer with player departures expected.

Mohamed Elneny is due to leave on a free transfer while Ainsley Maitland-Niles could also head for the exit door amid game time concerns.

Ruiz has been a long term target for Real Madrid, but reports claim that the Gunners have entered the pursuit of the Spain international.

Ruiz has made a positive start to the campaign for Napoli with two goals and two assists from nine appearances across all competitions.

He has a contract until June 2023. The Naples outfit may look to sanction his sale next summer if he does not accept an extension.
