Serie A side Napoli have made a move for Real Sociedad stopper Geronimo Rulli, according to reports.
The 25-year-old joined La Real last season on a permanent deal from Manchester City but the English club do hold a buy-back clause, which they have been interested to use this summer.
Interest from a number of clubs has since emerged, with Napoli making a move after the season end and whilst they were unsuccessful then – it is reported by Radio Marca, that a new and improved offer has been made.
Speaking of the Italian side’s interest last month, Rulli said: “I’m happy Napoli asked after me, as all Argentines know what Napoli and Diego Maradona represent.
“But Real Sociedad is my home and I’m challenging for a place at the World Cup. If Argentina qualify, it’ll be a great opportunity for me. I have Russia 2018 in my mind.
“That means I need to play consistently for the Coach to see me in action. San Sebastian feels like home now and I’ve been living here for three years. I doubled the number of appearances I had with Estudiantes, am happy and hope to remain for a long time.”
The youngster was an important member of La Real’s side last season and helped them achieve Europa League qualification.
