Recently-crowned Premier League champions Liverpool are not interested in Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, according to reports.
Following confirmation of their title win, there were suggestions that the Reds would be interested in adding the centre-back to their defensive options at Anfield. However, according to Sky Sports, that is indeed not the case, with Napoli’s asking price of £60m proving too high for a 29-year-old.
There are however reports indicating that Jurgen Klopp could potentially be interested in securing a new centre-back should Dejan Lovren leave Merseyside.
Despite that man not being Koulibaly, the Senegalese international is one of the most sought-after defenders in world football.
The former Genk man is an extremely commanding figure in the centre of the Napoli defence, developing that reputation since his arrival in July 2012.
In the time since, he has made 237 appearances for the club, scoring 10 goals.
His performances in that time has seen Koulibaly be linked with some of the biggest clubs around Europe including Liverpool, Paris Saint Germain and Manchester City. The latter are currently favourites to be his employers come the end of the summer transfer window and can be backed at a price of 1/4 with Paddy Power to secure his signature.
