Bocchetti invites Napoli bid

Rubin Kazan defender Salvatore Bocchetti has publicly invited Napoli to make a bid for him. “My contract expires on December 31.”

The Italian has been in Russia since August 2010 and is ready for a return home during the January transfer window.

“My contract expires on December 31. It is a fairytale for Neapolitans to play for Napoli and I always follow their progress. I also keep an eye on my old club Genoa,” he told Il Mattino.

“Would I cut my wages to push through a deal with Napoli? I don’t earn that much... Anyway, we can easily talk about it.

“Edinson Cavani is hugely impressive. I’d put him straight after Leo Messi in terms of today’s best strikers.”
