However, Paris Saint Germain are close to signing Fabian Ruiz from Napoli, while West Ham United signed Lucas Paqueta from Lyon.

Fabian Ruiz to PSG

Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain are very close to bringing Fabian Ruiz from Napoli. Talks are ongoing between all parties. PSG have reached an agreement with Napoli to sign the Spain international for €25 million. It’s a matter of time now to see Fabian Ruiz in Paris Saint-Germain’s shirt.

Christophe Galtier, the new manager of PSG, has been trying to strengthen his midfield from the start of the transfer window. Furthermore, midfielder Leandro Paredes is likely to join Juventus this window. So, the French side needs to replace him, and the manager believed Fabian Ruiz would be a perfect player in that position. Real Madrid and Manchester United were also interested in signing him, but PSG are favorite to get him within a few days.
