Meret ready to return

Napoli goalkeeper Alex Meret is believed to be close to a return, and just needs the go-ahead from club doctors.

The youngster broke a bone in his arm in his first training session after signing from Udinese, so is still to make his debut for the Partenopei.

His injury saw the club sign David Ospina, having also signed Orestis Karnezis from Udinese.

Today the Corriere dello Sport reports that Meret is close to a return, and will soon have a final check-up on the arm.

Once doctors give the go-ahead, the 21-year-old will be available to Coach Carlo Ancelotti, and will challenge Ospina and Karnezis for the number 1 shirt.
