Barcelona are reportedly prepared to up their interest in Napoli midfielder Fabian Ruiz.
Since leaving Real Betis for Naples in 2018, Ruiz has established himself as a key man at the Italian giants, contributing eight goals from 59 appearances in all competitions.
However, the form of the Spaniard has inevitably led to interest from clubs back home, a list which includes Barca and Real Madrid.
According to reports in Spain, it is the latter who are ready to make a formal approach for the 23-year-old in one of the upcoming transfer windows.
While Ruiz still has over three-and-a-half years remaining on his contract, a release clause means that Napoli are attempting to agree fresh terms.
As it stands, however, Ruiz is said to have little interest in extending his stay in Serie A.
