Bayern Munich monitoring Ajax goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli

Bayern Munich are interested in signing Ajax goalkeeper Geronimo Rulli this summer, according to Sky Germany journalist Florian Plettenberg.

There is a pressing need for a new shot-stopper at Bayern following the departure of Yann Sommer to Inter Milan.

Manuel Neuer’s recovery could be delayed a little longer after recently undergoing a minor operation on his right fibula.

With Alexander Nubel also completing his loan switch to Stuttgart, Bayern are left with Sven Ulreich as the only keeper in their squad.

Bayern have been preoccupied with the pursuit of Harry Kane for some time now, but they are aware that signing a goalie is equally important before the transfer window shuts in a few weeks.

The Bavarians have been keeping track of Brentford’s David Raya, but he looks to have chosen Arsenal as his next destination.

Argentine keeper Rulli has emerged as a potential target, but the Bundesliga giants will face competition from La Liga clubs for his signing.

The 31-year-old, who was part of Argentina’s World Cup-winning squad, moved to the Johan Cruyff Arena at the start of the year.

He has made 25 appearances for the Eredivisie giants, collecting ten clean sheets.

Rulli could be on the move again as he is ready for a new experience.

Ajax are not against the sale of the Argentine, having recently acquired young German keeper Diant Ramaj from Eintracht Frankfurt.

Rulli’s former club Villarreal and fellow Spanish rivals Sevilla are also keeping tabs on his situation ahead of a potential move this summer.

The Argentine enjoyed a notable stint at Villarreal, helping them win the Europa League in the 2020/21 campaign.

He was also a central figure in the Yellow Submarine’s fairy tale run in the Champions League the following season, during which they defeated Bayern in the quarter-finals.
