Napoli back in for Rulli?

Napoli have reignited their interest in Real Sociedad goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli despite a deal earlier this summer reportedly falling through.

According to Radio Marca Donostia, the Italian giants have returned with a ‘significant offer’ which is thought to exceed €15m and would likely tempt La Real.

The 25-year-old Argentine shot-stopped had previously been linked with a move to the Italian giants to replace Pepe Reina, although Manchester City still have a buyback clause for the goalkeeper.

“I’m happy Napoli asked after me, as all Argentines know what Napoli and Diego Maradona represent,” Rulli was quoted as saying by Marca earlier this month.

“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.

Rulli played every minute for La Real in their La Liga campaign last year, helping them to a Europa League position next season and has a €40m release clause in his contract.
