Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz is reportedly a target for La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid ahead of the summer transfer window.

Barcelona and Real Madrid are set to go head-to-head for Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz, according to a report.

The Spain international has enjoyed another impressive campaign and is rumoured to have also attracted interest from Manchester City and Liverpool.

Napoli are believed to be willing to accept a bid of €80m (£69.8m) for Ruiz, who has previously spent four years in La Liga with Real Betis.

Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Madrid and Barca are both serious with their interest in the 24-year-old, potentially setting up a tug of war for his signing this summer.

Los Blancos are believed to be long-term admirers of Ruiz, while Barcelona's interest has grown during a frustrating 2019-20 campaign.

Madrid trail their bitter rivals by two points ahead of La Liga's planned return on June 12.
