Former Napoli Star Now at PSG Still on Juventus Radar

Juventus have inserted an old acquaintance of director Cristiano Giuntoli into their wish list, Fabian Ruiz. The exec brought him to Italy back in the day and also negotiated his sale to PSG a couple of years ago. He could be expendable since he doesn’t have a starring role at the moment, TuttoSport informs.

The 27-year-old has totaled 62 appearances since moving to France, scoring 4 times and providing 6 assists. He has started 11 times in Ligue 1 this campaign and has often been an unused sub lately. The French powerhouse snatched him for €23M in the summer of 2022 as he was about to enter the final year of his contract with Napoli.

The Juventus chief is a big fan of Fabian Ruiz, but his availability will hinge on how PSG devise their transfer market strategy following the departure of Kylian Mbappé. The Spaniard isn’t a cornerstone but is still important to their rotation. That may change if Nasser Al-Khelaifi brings in a bunch of new stars after losing their biggest one.

The maestro, who has 21 caps with his national team, previously played at Napoli for four years.

Our Take on Juventus and Fabian Ruiz

He’s the type of player who could properly lift their midfield, if he was a little more consistent and energetic, but buying from fellow European giants might be too expensive for the Bianconeri’s current era, also in terms of wages.
