Salvatore Bocchetti has invited his hometown club Napoli to make a bid for him when his contract with Rubin Kazan expires on December 31.
Bocchetti, 25, has played for Rubin since the summer of 2010 but now seems ready to return to the peninsula and, in a brief interview with Il Mattino, the defender made it clear where he would like to play.
He told the newspaper: "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."
Asked if he would take a pay-cut to secure a move to Napoli, he said: "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."
