Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz is being eyed by Real Madrid as an alternative to Paul Pogba and Christian Eriksen, according to a report.

Florentino Perez has reportedly devised a back-up plan in case Real Madrid miss out on top midfield targets Paul Pogba and Christian Eriksen, with Napoli's Fabian Ruiz being targeted.

Los Blancos have already splashed out around £300m this summer on Eden Hazard, Ferland Mendy, Luka Jovic and Eder Militao.

Madrid are expected to have one more big signing in them, though, and Manchester United's Pogba and Eriksen of Tottenham Hotspur have both been strongly linked.

With United and Spurs rumoured to be holding out for mammoth sums, however, reports from Spain suggest that Zinedine Zidane's men are prepared to look elsewhere.

Napoli ace Ruiz enjoyed another impressive campaign last season and also boasts experience in La Liga with Real Betis, which the report indicates makes him a good Plan B for Perez.
