Lazio interest in Fabian Ruiz

Lazio have identified Real Betis midfielder Fabian Ruiz as a summer transfer target, according to reports in the Spanish press.

The 21-year-old signed a new long-term contract with Los Verdiblancos until June 2023 last month, which reportedly will see his release clause double from €15m to €30m.

However, a report in El Mundo Deportivo states the Rome-based club would be willing to trigger the increased release clause due to the imminent sale of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

The report indicates Lazio ‘have taken a significant liking’ to the Andalucian, a product of the Betis youth system, who has also reportedly been scouted by the club’s rivals Roma.
