Plenty of Liverpool fans got excited over the thought of us signing Napoli’s Fabian Ruiz in the summer.
The Express previously reported that the 24-year-old is top of their summer shopping list with the likes of Adam Lallana and Xherdan Shaqiri rumoured to be departing Anfield when the 2019/20 campaign concludes.
Anfield Edition posted on Twitter that Gli Azzurri lowered Ruiz’s asking price from €80m (£70m) to €60m (£52m), which Gazzetta Dello Sport revealed earlier this month. The report says that this was due to the financial complications that the coronavirus pandemic has caused and the fact that the player is keen to leave.
Would Fabian Ruiz be a good fit in Jurgen Klopp's system?
With this in mind, supporters drooled over the prospect of Ruiz coming to Anfield and made their feelings clear on social media. One fan said that he could be a replacement for Lallana, while another believes that Ruiz should “get in ASAP”.
Lallana’s replacement I guess
