Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City and Everton are all showing a “strong interest” in Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, according to the Gazzetta Dello Sport.
The Italian publication claims the Serie A club’s decision to lower the Senegalese international’s price tag to €50m (£43m) may tempt potential suitors into making an offer for the defender.
For some reason, the Italian press have consistently linked Koulibaly with a move to Anfield over the past year, despite very little evidence to justify their claims. After confirming the signing of RB Leipzig’s Ibrahima Konate, you would have to think that the Reds won’t be in the market for another centre-half this summer anyway.
Out of the other three teams, United would probably be the likeliest destination, with the Red Devils keen on finding a partner for Harry Maguire. A move to Everon is likely to be dependent on Carlo Ancelotti, who has been linked with a return to Real Madrid.
