Liverpool are ahead of Manchester United in the battle for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, TMW reports.
According to the available information, the Merseysiders consider the Senegalese defender as Virgil Van Dijk’s ideal partner.
Under the current contract, Koulibaly has been linked with Napoli until 2023. So far, the player has been most actively linked with Emirates.
By the way, the “Red Devils” addressed the Neapolitan club about the price of Koulibaly and received the answer that the Senegalese is worth 100 million euros.
Also noteworthy that, according to the latest rumors, along with Manchester United, PSG are also interested in the Senegalese defender.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis believes that the era of this line-up is over. The team needs to be reorganized. The leaders also need to be sold. The head coach, Gennaro Gattuso must build a new team. To do this, he will be offered a contract extension.
Liverpool are ready to pay € 60 million in exchange for Kalidou Koulibaly.
Liverpool are offering Napoli € 60 million in exchange for Kalidou Koulibaly, although that is a very small amount compared to what the Italians are asking for. This information is spread by the Italian edition “Corriere Dello Sport.” The source also adds that “Napoli” evaluates the 29-year-old Senegalese, who has French citizenship, for 100 million euros.
It is also reported that despite the crisis caused by the coronavirus, the Neapolitans are not going to reduce the price.
Koulibaly has made a total of 21 appearances for Napoli this season.
