According to the Corriere dello Sport, Liverpool are offering €60m for Kalidou Koulibaly, but that’s a long way off Napoli’s €100m asking price.
The centre-back has been repeatedly linked with a move away from the Stadio San Paolo this summer, although the Partenopei have no intention of lowering his transfer valuation.
Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain were strong contenders, but Liverpool are now stepping up the pressure, as they want to form a sensational partnership with Virgil van Dijk.
The Corriere dello Sport suggests Jurgen Klopp’s men are making an offer worth €60m.
Considering Napoli want a minimum of €100m for the Senegal international, negotiations cannot even begin with such a big gap.
It was Koulibaly’s 29th birthday yesterday, so he celebrated with the entire Napoli squad and their families at a huge party.
Social media pictures and videos showed the group dancing away with a guest of honour: the Coppa Italia trophy, won against Juventus on penalties earlier this week.
