Arsenal and Newcastle ‘leading Man Utd in race for Fabian Ruiz transfer with Napoli star available for just £26m’ | The Sun

ARSENAL and Newcastle are leading Manchester United in the race to sign transfer target Fabian Ruiz, according to reports.

The midfielder is entering the final year of his contract at Napoli and the Italian side are keen to pick up a fee instead of losing him for free next summer.

As a result, Napoli are looking to pick up £25.8million for Ruiz, sparking interest from across Europe.

Man Utd are hoping to bolster Erik ten Hag's midfield and Ruiz is a player who interest the Premier League club.

However, according to Corriere dello Sport, United are being led in the pursuit for the midfielder by Arsenal and Newcastle.

The Gunners are set for a second consecutive summer spending spree, and adding quality in the middle of the park is one of boss Mikel Arteta's top priorities.
