Liverpool have reportedly joined the race to sign Napoli’s Fabian Ruiz, with Barcelona and Real Madrid both frequently linked to the midfielder.
El Mundo Deportivo cite a report in the Sunday Express that Reds boss Jurgen Klopp believes the Spain international would suit the style of the Premier League and would be willing to sanction an €80m move.
The central midfielder has made 32 appearances for the Italian side this campaign and is developing into one of the most highly-rated Spanish stars.
Diario AS first reported on Madrid’s interest in the player last summer and he has also said to be a long-term of objective of their El Clasico rivals Barcelona.
Interest from the Camp Nou is logical due to the uncertainty over the long-term futures of central midfielders Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal and Sergio Busquets.
Fabian received his first senior Spain cap in June and has impressed in Serie A following a €30m transfer from Real Betis in the summer of 2018.
