The agent of Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz has claimed that "very important clubs" have been in contact over a potential move for his client in this summer's transfer window.
Alvaro Torres has denied that there is a release clause in the midfielder's current deal but has hinted that his client could leave Naples ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
"There have been many changes in the club this season, it's been a difficult year for Napoli," Torres told Marca. "A renewal? We have set aside negotiations for a while, until the end of the season. There are very important clubs that have asked for information, and we have already informed Napoli.
"All these clubs believe that he is a midfielder who is going to be one of the players of the decade. There is no release clause in his current contract. I really don't know what Ruiz's value is at present. In the short term he is focused on Napoli and at the end we will see."
The 23-year-old, whose current deal runs until June 2023, has scored three times and provided two assists in 32 appearances for Gli Azzurri during the 2019-20 campaign.
