Roma are set to be lumbered with Robin Olsen after Montpellier opted to sign Real Sociedad goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli.
Olsen looked to be all set for Montpellier, with Roma even prepared to take a minor loss on the Swede so they could get him off their books.
However, Real Sociedad confirmed on Sunday evening that they had given Rulli permission to undergo a medical with the French side.
The Argentine was linked with Napoli before they signed Alex Meret as Pepe Reina’s long-term heir last summer.
Olsen, meanwhile, will go into the new season as the Giallorossi’s third-choice shot-stopper, behind Pau Lopez and Antonio Mirante, if he does not secure a move away this month.
