Arsenal and Newcastle United vying for Napoli star?
Arsenal and Newcastle United are among favourites to sign Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz during the summer transfer window.
The Spaniard is about to enter the final year of his contract with the Serie A outfit, and it is claimed that he could be sold for €30 million.
The Naples side are also willing to accept €25m plus €5m in add-ons, and Corriere dello Sport claims that the Gunners and Magpies are keen.
The Magpies attempted to sign the midfielder during the January transfer window, but Napoli had no plans of losing him midway through the season.
Their hands are now tied with Ruiz reluctant to sign a new deal. It could be a direct tussle between the Premier League duo for his signature.
Arsenal are better placed with European football, but it is unclear whether they will make an approach with their priority lying elsewhere.
Leicester City's Youri Tielemans has been their main midfield target, and they may only move for Ruiz if talks for the Belgian breakdown.
