Classy Liverpool target Fabian Ruiz prepared to run contract down, but Real Madrid present ‘huge problem’

Liverpool target Fabian Ruiz is set to run out his contract ahead of a free agent move, while an Arsenal-linked striker has been named in a six-man reshuffle, all on Tuesday’s Paper Talk.


Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz wants to join Real Madrid as a free agent, although his club would apparently prefer to make a deal with Liverpool or PSG, according to a report.

The 26-year-old Spaniard will see his current contract at Napoli expire in 2023. Fabián has become a cultured and collected central midfielder since moving to Italy from Real Betis in 2018.

As such, it’s no surprise to see a host of English teams linked with Fabian as his contract runs out.

In fact, Newcastle and Arsenal have regularly been named alongside Fabian. The Magpies are believed to have had a January offer for the midfielder turned down.

However, according to Soccer Italy, Liverpool is in the mix along with PSG. However, if the player gets away with it, he will head to the Bernabéu.

Quoting the Spanish medium sports journalFabian is claimed to be ‘prepared to exhaust his contract’ so he can join Real Madrid for free in 2023.

Real’s current manager is Carlo Ancelotti, the same man who brought him to Napoli in 2018.

Ancelotti enthusiastic about the reunion of Fabián Ruiz

Ancelotti reportedly wants the meeting, though a free-agent exit is not what Napoli has in mind.

Fabian is tagged as a potential ‘money earner’ for the Italian outfit who could bring in a significant sum if sold this summer.

That’s where Liverpool and PSG apparently arrive with their best hopes of landing Fabian with a summer move by moving ahead of Real 12 months later.

It is claimed that it is becoming more and more evident that Fabian will not draft new terms in Napoli. That is due to Napoli’s desire to cut their wage bill and Fabian is unlikely to be extended on minor terms.

As such, Napoli could sanction a summer exit to avoid the ‘big deal’ of losing such a salable asset for nothing in 2023.

If Liverpool act on their interest, a figure of around £40m may be required to seal a deal. That was the sum that Newcastle reportedly saw rejected in the last window.although Napoli now seems more open to a sale.


Arsenal could bolster their firepower by signing Luka Jovic from Real Madrid after the striker was included in a list of six stars Los Blancos could drop this summer.

The Gunners will surely look for reinforcements in the final third at the end of the season.

Dusan Vlahovic was the man most fervently pursued in January when it became clear that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang might move to Barcelona. Aubameyang left, but Vlahovic joined Juventus.

That left Mikel Arteta with only Alexandre Lacazette and Eddie Nketiah to complete the season as recognized centre-forwards. However, both are set to become free agents on June 30.

Arsenal So he could desperately need at least two new strikers and Luka Jovic has established regular links with the Gunners. And according to the Mirror, the Serb, 24, could be on the move.

Jovic remains in limbo at the Bernabéu after struggling to adapt since leaving Eintracht Frankfurt in 2019.

He has just three goals to his name since moving, indicating that a fresh start elsewhere may be in the best interest of everyone involved.

Quoting the Spanish media BrandJovic figures in a list of six strong stars that Real Madrid could follow at the end of the season.

The report claims that interest in Jovic is widespread and as such Real will hold out for a ‘significant fee’. It cost roughly £50m in 2019 to give an idea of ​​what they would order three years later.

Also on the list of possible summer casualties are Gareth Bale (free agent), Dani Ceballos, Jesús Vallejo, Mariano Díaz and Álvaro Odriozola.


Leeds ace Kalvin Phillips is a man in demand, though he wants to extend his stay at Elland Road, once some of the cleanup has been completed.

The midfielder is attracting huge interest from Steven Gerrard’s ambitious Aston Villa. According to the Daily MailNewcastle and West Ham are also on the sidelines for signing if a surprise summer sale is sanctioned.

However, according to his report, the 26-year-old has told Leeds that he intends to sign a new contract with the Whites.

However, your signature will not be written until the summer at the earliest. This is when Phillips’ deal with his current agent expires and it is stated that a new Leeds contract will not be signed until there is a new agent.

If Leeds got over the drop it could still influence a potential U-turn from Phillips. However, two wins and a draw in Jesse Marsch’s first five games in charge have pushed him within eight points of the relegation zone.
