Manchester City want to sign Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz during this summer's transfer window, according to a report.

Manchester City are reportedly ready to battle a host of clubs for Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz.

The Spaniard's future continues to be discussed ahead of this summer's transfer window, and it seems likely that Napoli will find it difficult to keep hold of the 24-year-old.

Liverpool and Barcelona have both been strongly linked with a move, while Ruiz's agent Alvaro Torres recently claimed that Real Madrid had expressed an interest.

According to Corriere dello Sport, though, City are also tracking the Spain international ahead of a potential offer ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.

Ruiz scored three times in 60 appearances for Real Betis before joining Napoli in the summer of 2018.

This term, the midfielder, who has a contract with Gennaro Gattuso's side until the end of the 2022-23 campaign, has contributed three goals and two assists in 32 appearances.
