‘Would Be An Absolute Dream Signing’ ‘Not Gonna Happen’ Fans React To Claims That Liverpool Are Keen On Serie A Colossus

Liverpool have made contact about signing Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, according to reports in the Italian media.

The Serie A club are said to be willing to sell the 28-year-old when the transfer window reopens and could even consider cutting their €100m (Β£88m) asking price to offload the centre-back.

That has apparently led to the Reds getting involved in negotiations and it is believed the Merseyside club may sell Joel Matip in order to free up room for Koulibaly. Supporters on Twitter would love to see the Senegalese international move to Anfield but they are very sceptical:

Liverpool are not likely to be spending significant sums in the transfer market this summer, especially on a player who will turn 29 in June.

The centre-back partnership of Koulibaly and Virgil van Dijk would indeed by a mouthwatering prospect but this is very much one of those rumours that has very little basis in fact.

Manchester United and Manchester City are also said to be looking at the defender, and both those clubs look likelier destinations than the Reds.
