Atletico Madrid are vying with Italian duo Roma and Napoli for highly-rated Real Betis midfielder Fabian Ruiz, according to reports.
The Spain Under-21 international has become one of the strongholds in the Betis midfield this term, prompting interest from a number of top clubs hoping to secure his signature.
Italian transfer guru Gianluca Di Marzio now reports the 22-year-old is being monitored by a trio of high-ranking clubs, including Diego Simeone’s side.
Fabian renewed his contract at Los Verdiblancos in January, reportedly hiking his release clause from a lowly €12m to a fee in excess of €35m.
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.
