According to Italian outlet Calciomercato, Real Madrid are interested in signing the Spanish international and have prepared a bid of €70 million for him.

Ruiz has been a key player for Napoli since joining them from Real Betis, amassing ten goals and five assists in 71 appearances across all competitions so far. Given his form this season, there’s a good chance the 23-year-old could be a starter for Spain in the Euros.

Someone like Ruiz would bolster Real Madrid’s squad, especially if Luka Modric departs in the summer when his contract expires. However, Napoli wouldn’t be too willing to let go of the Spaniard who has become one of their most crucial players. Provided he does move to the Bernabeu, it would be interesting to see how frequently Zinedine Zidane starts him.
