Reds are reportedly ahead of Man United in the race to sign Napoli defender Senegal international has been a world-class performer in his time in Serie A and has long been linked with a move to Theatre of Dreams in particular.
However, it now looks the Merseyside giants are the favourites for Koulibaly’s signature as he’s made available for a fee of £90m ahead of next campaign, according to the Express.
It remains to be seen if the Merseyside giants will definitely be ready to pay that much for the 29-year-old, though he’d surely be a quality partner for Virgil van Dijk.
Still, the Reds have other strong options in defence, with Joel Matip and Joe Gomez shining for Jurgen Klopp’s side this campaign and last.
It would be hard to turn down the chance to sign Kalidou if he becomes available, however, and Liverpool would surely love to beat rivals Red Devils to this contract.
Man United also look in need of new addition at centre-back, with Koulibaly sure to be a major upgrade on the likes of Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly.
