According to Catalunya Ràdio’s El Club de la Mitjanit programme on Sunday, Barcelona are interested in Spain international Fabián Ruiz.

The Napoli midfielder previously played in LaLiga with Real Betis. Barça say that the operation would be difficult to complete. They have not yet made contact with Napoli and the Serie A club do not want to include players such as Miralem Pjanic or Júnior Firpo in the deal.

Fabián was wanted by Barça under Ernesto Valverde and also under head coach Quique Setién.
