Newcastle to Dig Deep Into Their Pockets and Sign Fabian Ruiz?

Newcastle’s recent takeover has made the Premier League club one of the richest in the world. It is expected that they will use some of their transfer budget to try and sign Fabian Ruiz from Napoli.

There are a number of clubs keeping tabs on Fabian Ruiz. The Spanish international has long been viewed as one of the best central midfielders in European football. Recent news that Napoli might want to part with him for the discount price of £25.8m has paid many of these clubs to pay notice.

Newcastle is in the front seat to earn his signature. News reports from England suggest that the Magpies are readying their transfer offer for the 15-time capped Spain international.

The deal could be made easier by the fact that Ruiz has only one year remaining on his contract with the Serie A side. While he has long been a favorite at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium, the playmaker has hesitated to sign an extension.

Fabian Ruiz is still only 26 years old. He signed for Napoli back in 2018 from Betis Sevilla, the club where he started his professional career. Ruiz has played to date 125 Serie A games for Napoli, scoring 18 times, and providing 9 assists. He is considered one of the most important players in the current squad, having been a regular starting player for The Partenopei in recent seasons. It is understood that Ruiz’s contract involves a release clause of around €30 million.

Napoli could undergo a large change of personnel during the summer. Next season could see Gli Azzuri begin without the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly, Dries Mertens, and, now, Fabian Ruiz.

The Spanish playmaker is also reportedly on the transfer radar of other Premier League clubs like Arsenal, Manchester City, and Manchester United. It is expected that additional information will be available in the weeks ahead.
