Liverpool are reportedly keen to bring Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly to Anfield during this summer’s transfer window.
The speculation surrounding the 29-year-old’s future continues to gather pace, with a host of clubs thought to be interested in signing him ahead of the 2020-21 campaign.
Manchester City were believed to be at the head of the queue for the Senegal international, but according to Tuttomercato, Liverpool are set to make an official move in the coming days.
The report claims that Reds boss Jurgen Klopp wants Koulibaly to partner Netherlands international Virgil van Dijk at the heart of his defence during the 2020-21 season.
The centre-back still has three years left to run on his contract at Stadio San Paolo but could depart as the Italian club face missing out on Champions League qualification for next season.
Napoli, who are currently sixth in the Serie A table, are believed to still value the Senegalese at £90m despite the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
