Real Madrid did not complete any player signings during the transfer summer but will be looking at new players for the January winter window. One of the players who has caught the eye of the Spanish club is Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz. Calcio Mercato claims that representatives of Real have made contact with the agent of Ruiz to talk about a potential transfer.
The 24-year-old playmaker joined Napoli in 2018 from Real Betis and he has established himself as one of the best midfielders in the Serie A. The Spanish international, who has earned seven caps for his country, has a contract until the summer of 2023 with Napoli but is believed to be keen on completing a return to the Spanish leagues.
Ruiz developed through the youth academy at Betis and made his professional debut playing for the club from Seville. In 2018 he signed for Napoli for a reported €30m transfer fee. Since joining the Italians he has made 91 appearances for them across all competitions, scoring 11 goals and 11 assists. At this point it is unclear if Napoli would be willing to sell Ruiz, who represents a €50m transfer value.
