Paris Saint-Germain have signed central midfielder Fabian Ruiz from Napoli, with the Spain international signing a five-year contract, the Ligue 1 club said on Tuesday.

Financial details were not disclosed but media reports said PSG paid an initial fee off £18.5 million.

The 26-year-old has 15 caps for Spain ever since making his debut in 2019 and has even scored once on international duty.

He picked up seven goals and five assists for Napoli in all competitions last season, helping them to a third-place finish in Serie A.

 The Spaniard may not be the last Napoli player to leave this summer, with a number of clubs circling for highly-rated striker Victor Osimhen.

Ruiz is PSG's sixth signing since the close season after midfielders Vitinha and Renato Sanches, defenders Nuno Mendes and Nordi Mukiele, and forward Hugo Ekitike.

They disappointed in their last outing against Monaco, as they dropped their first points of the season in a 1-1 draw.

Despite this, PSG remain top of Ligue 1 with 10 points and next play Toulouse on Wednesday.

They will also get their Champions League campaign underway against Juventus next week.
