Manchester City are close to the breakthrough for Kalidou Koulibaly, reportedly raising their offer for the Napoli defender to €70m plus bonuses.
According to both Sky Sport Italia and Sportitalia, the negotiations are reaching a key moment via intermediary Fali Ramadani.
The previous bid of €65m plus bonuses was rejected, while Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis is prepared to drop slightly below the €80m asking price.
