LIVERPOOL OUT TO PIP RIVALS AT FABIAN RUIZ
Liverpool are ready to make a £ 74m offer to Fabian Ruiz to beat a variety of rivals against Napoli's midfielder.

And while Ruiz is one that you might want to keep, Liverpool believes that a large supply can now persuade them to sell and could allow them to plan their summer expenses in advance.
According to the Sunday Express, Liverpool boss Jürgen Klopp has put the Spanish midfielder at the top of his summer wanted list, and the club is preparing an approach to beat Real Madrid and Barcelona.
The 23-year-old has a three-year contract with Napoli and His agent this week says that renewal talks with the club will take place as a reward for his good shape.
"There have been many changes in the club this season. It has been a difficult year for Napoli," said Agent Alvaro Torres.
"A renewal? We stopped negotiations for a while until the end of the season.
“There are very important clubs that have asked for information and we have already informed Napoli. There is no release clause in his current contract. I really don't know what Ruiz's value is right now. "
