Mixed reports on Liverpool and Koulibaly

There are very different reports coming out of England on Liverpool interest in Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

Today’s edition of The Sun maintains that the Premier League champions are ‘confident’ of signing the Senegal international, whose price-tag has been set at €100m.

They would try to include Dejan Lovren as part of an exchange deal to lower the cost of the operation.

On the other hand, Sky Sports UK insist the Reds are not interested in making the purchase, as he is considered too expensive.

Liverpool way off Koulibaly price-tag

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.

Ancelotti: 'Napoli fought racism'

Carlo Ancelotti has explained how Napoli fought to ensure Kalidou Koulibaly was not racially abused again. “If you challenge people, things can change.”

The world of football is taking a stand against racism, with players in the Premier League taking a knee before games and wearing ‘Black Lives Matter’ on the back of their shirts.

“Football has an important role to play in educating people,” Ancelotti told The Guardian. “Millions follow footballers, watch what they do, hear what they say.”

Napoli set €100m price tags on Koulibaly and Fabian

Kalidou Koulibaly and Fabian Ruiz are being linked away from Napoli, but President Aurelio De Laurentiis has claimed he will only listen to the right offer.

The Senegalese defender Koulibaly has been targeted by the giants in Europe, with Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain reportedly chasing the centre-back.

The influential midfielder Fabian has emerged as a mark for the two Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona in recent weeks but De Laurentiis insisted that he doesn’t have to sell either of them unless he will get the right amount.
