Italian press links Liverpool with move for Napoli talisman

Liverpool are reported to have made contact with Serie A club Napoli about the availability of defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

If the story, as published on Tuttomercatoweb is to be believed, then The Reds have enquired about Kalidou Koulibaly’s transfer situation. With Manchester United also thought to be tracking the centre-half who turns 29 next month, it’s thought Napoli could be keen to sell Koulibaly to help lessen the financial impact of the Coronavirus pandemic. Napoli were having a poor season in Serie A by their standards, meaning they may not qualify for next season’s Champions League.

The report states that Koulibaly joining Liverpool would mean that Joël Matip’s days at the club are numbered. However, that just seems like a stab in the dark to pad out the transfer story.

Koulibaly signed for Napoli back in 2014 and has been one of the club’s most consistent top performers in the years since.
