Fabian Ruiz to Napoli ‘this week’

Real Betis midfielder Fabian Ruiz is expected to complete his move to Italian club Napoli this week, according to reports.

The Spain Under-21 international is expected to join the Naples-based club in a €30m deal on a five-year contract, worth a reported €2.5m per annum.

El Desmarque cite Il Mattino as reporting the medical will be carried out on Wednesday with an announcement then expected with 24 hours.

“I can confirm that I am joining Napoli, but I do not know when it will be made official,” Fabian told the Italian press on Thursday, as cited by Sevilla Info.

Fabian renewed his contract at Los Verdiblancos until 2023 in January, reportedly hiking his release clause from a lowly €12m to a fee in excess of €30m.

The Betis youth product netted three goals in 34 Liga appearances this season as the club secured a top six finish and a return to European football.
