Napoli may be willing to sell Kalidou Koulibaly for Just £69 million, alerting the likes of Chelsea.
There have been some reports in the media suggesting that we are planning for potential new signings in the coming transfer windows, as we have been given a date for their transfer ban to be appealed. and it will mean that Frank Lampard will be able to delve into the clubs transfer kitty and add a few players to the squad that will add some experience, and quality in the right areas of the pitch.
And one name that will be high up on the shopping list is that of Kouliably, who is easily regarded as one of the finest central defenders in Seria A, and around Europe.
Koulibaly has been outstanding for Napoli over the past few seasons and his performances has attracted all sorts of interest from the games biggest clubs, with the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid and even Barcelona all joining us in the chase for the defenders signature.
Now, according to Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, President Aurelio De Laurentiis plans to overhaul the Partenopei squad with Koulibaly, Dries Mertens, Jose Callejon, Lorenzo Insigne, Allan, Elseid Hysaj and Faouzi Ghoulam also set to depart.
And the recent report also suggested that Koulibaly may actually be on the market for just £69 million in the January window, which is well below the £150 million that the Italians placed on his head during the summer transfer window.
Look there is no doubt that he have a very young, exciting team that can push on and get back inside the Champions League by the end of the season, but if we want to push on and challenge some of the bigger clubs, then we need to go out and add a few world class players to the back-line.
We don’t know if the reports are true, but I would love to see the world class Koulibaly partnering Tomori at the back.
