The English press reports this Sunday of a pronounced interest of Liverpool for the Senegalese defender of Napoli, Kalidou Koulibaly. The idea makes all lovers of Liverpool salivate: imagine a central hinge composed of Virgil van Dijk and Kalidou Koulibaly. After an unforgettable week marked by a title of champion of England awaited for 30 years, the fans of the Mersey club do not want to get out of their little cloud. And this rumor goes in this direction. Several British newspapers, including the Daily Express, report a rapprochement between the Senegalese rock and the British club.
Napoli remains greedy for Koulibaly
The name of Koulibaly has been linked in recent weeks to Psg or Manchester City. The vice-champion of Africa would see himself more in the Premier League and Liverpool has everything to seduce him. The hardest part to convince will be the management of Napoli, known for its harshness in transfers. The whimsical president Aurelio de Laurentiis would not want to drop his central defender at less than 100 million euros. A Liverpool player could join the operation. Koulibaly, 29, is under contract with Napoli until June 2023. Jürgen Klopp appreciates its technical characteristics.
