Power-wise, no, since, as countless others said, he hasn't the eyes.
For the rest, as Kyuubi and others have said, he is the closest one to the Sage, since the very beings that he created aknowledged Naruto to be his second coming, the savior and all the cheesy stuff that goes with it.
I have to agree with Uchiha_Blood. Except for the eyes, Naruto will be quite close. I just hope he'll never get the eyes. Though I fear, there might be several possibilities for him to get Sharingan / Rinnegan... Sasuke might give one of his eyes to Naruto, Tobis collection might be used, or even he could just have them from the beginning on
Nagato didn't seem to have his rinnegan when he was a child, so there doesn't necessarily has to be optical evidence that you have special eyes...
Naruto is not a doujutsu character nor it is in his blood to have powerful eyes. It would be retarded if he somehow obtained them. That was said countless times.
I didn't say anything else. I wrote I won't like this to happen, I agree it would be retarded. I just wanted so show we don't know what Kishi has in mind, and that there are possibilities for this to happen.
There are limitless possibilities here. Not because of some reasons, but because of lack whereof.
Kishimoto is a crackhead.
For now, it's the Uchiha he's pampering. Next time, it'll be byakugan pinky toes on Choji, so he can always see where he's kicking.
Well, naruto getting the eyes would not be so out there nowadays. Remember good old nagato? He was an uzumaki and he had the eyes. For nagato to get the rinnengan he needs to set of powers to complete the whole which is the rikudo's power. Basically this means that nagato was somehow given the eyes with actually uchiha powers and in conjunction with his uzumaki/senju powers he got the rinnengan. Madara was an uchiha with no original senju powers of his own yet through his battle with hashirama he somehow ended up with mokuton which rivaled that of hashirama (which is way more than what even yamato has). It doesn't matter whether naruto now does not have the eyes, the manga has proven beyond reasonable doubt that uchiha and senju powers are basically trading cards (except that with genes). Could naruto become an actual rikudo? Yes he could. Heck, it wouldn't even be nearly as bad as the trolling kishi did to nagato when he did not outright murder hinata, when naruto got sennin AND kyubi powers, or when it turned out madara did not even need the kyubi to match or surpass a biju's power (he got kyubi for the lolz). Naruto turning into a full fledge rikudo sennin with the rinnengan, biju and sage mode would not even be nearly as bad a trolling as when it turned out the rinnengan turns you into shen long....
I bet Bee is gonna die soon. If i use the knowledge the story gave me thus far i can easily deduct it. Bee is gonna be abducted by Tobi and then Naruto will chase after and fight Tobi again and lose and then both the biju will be extracted and the ten tails will be revived. But since Naruto is an Uzumaki he will survive the extraction and end up sealing the juubi in himself.
That is what i think will happen you don't have to believe it or anything.
Doesn't seem so foolish to me Naruto getting the eyes, I mean, I agree it doesn't fit him, his fighting style nor his personality but ever since Kishi started this "Naruto in the same path as the Rykudou Sennin" everything seems possible to me. If he really wants Naruto to mimic the Sage in terms of power and the influence he had in the ninja world at the time, it would only seem logical that Naruto needs the eyes.
However, Kishi could be going for a different approach, something like "sure, Naruto is the real deal but this time it will be an Uchiha and a Senju, the two brothers, that will create the change in the world". If he goes for this approach, Naruto could keep the "body" and Sasuke the "eyes" and both of them, together, could become the new Rykudou, while at the same time changing the history of hatred and competition among both of the clans.
I really don't know what I would prefer...I mean, when I think about it, seeing Naruto with a rinnegan seems pretty cheesy to me, a bit weird even, but then when I think of the power possibilities it makes me wonder...At the same time I am one of those people that wishes to see Sasuke redeemed in a certain way(he could still die, but redeem himself in the end). If he doesn't die it could also be interesting to see both Naruto and Sasuke fighting as brothers, as one, as the new Rikudou.
I don't know, I babbled a bit too much, I might be going way ahead of myself
the bijuu seem to find a resemblence between naruto and the sag of 6 paths
i.think there is a definite connection rinnegan or not
It will be interesting to see what happens if Bee dies. We do know, to get the MS you need to see your closest friend die. And we also do know, that Nagato's Rinnegan appeared when he saw his parents die. So far, Naruto has not experienced death of a close friend right before his eyes (Gaara doesn't count, he thought Chiyo was just healing him, and Chiyo was far from being a friend of him, other then Bee). I think IF Naruto gets the Rinnegan, than it will be in that moment. Though I still think it would suck, but we never know what Kishi has in mind...
enough so that i doubt kishi just made the coincidental similarity
now i have seen pics that show the reason for the sage of 6 paths hair looking like that is a mask, so who knows, but also naruto obviously has the 6 paths emblems around his neck in the kyuubi mode
so i think the writing is on the wall that he is "the next" sage of 6 paths
even if it chaps the backside of the uchiha fan-boys, naruto is the next rikudou senin
The juubi has the most powerful rinnegan. Infact, my assumption is that the juubi is the reason why the rikudou sennin has the rinnegan. And the fact that the kyubi has the half power of the juubi, then it's not possible that naruto will going to awaken the rinnegan, thanks for the kyubi though.
i think i may have missed something because i dont remember a whole lot about what rikudou spoke about, could you provide a chapter or link to where that happened?

and the other son not recieving the eye power (senju) maybe the lineage of the son who recieved the doujutsu are the only ones with potential to "awaken" a rinnegan, now that we have a good idea that nagato's rinnegan were not recieved naturally, it kind of makes sense
but if anyone without a MS or EMS can awaken a rinnegan, based off of relation to the rikudou
it would be naruto, because there is a DEFINITE connection to the rikudou, anyone who denies that is being naive
