A choice of Liverpool fans have actually offered a blended action to a current report linking Kalidou Koulibaly with a summer move to the club.
Koulibaly, 28, has actually been with Napoli for the past five-and-a-half seasons, where he has built his reputation as one of the best-performing centre-backs in European football.
He has actually been connected with a Premier League move for the past couple of years however club chairman Aurelio de Laurentiis has actually hesitated to part ways with his services.
Nevertheless, it now appears that there is a modification in position and the club would want to sanction Koulibaly’s sale as they deal with the possibility of losing out on next season’s Champions League.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, Jurgen Klopp’s side have actually made preliminary contact with the Serie A outfit for Koulibaly, whom they have actually determined as the main protective partner for Virgil van Dijk next term.
The very same outlet recommends that the Italian club might accept a lower fee than the ₤87 m asking cost for Koulibaly, which was set prior to the coronavirus pandemic. Joel Matip has actually been fancied to head through the exit door upon the defender’s arrival.
The mix of Van Dijk and Koulibaly might be interesting to watch at the heart of the Reds backline however there are doubts whether the club would want to invest big on the Senegalese, who will turn 29 in June.
The Reds currently have an amazing young centre-back in Joe Gomez, who has actually formed a strong collaboration with Van Dijk and any move for Koulibaly would straight hinder the playing time of the England international.
While connecting on Twitter, some Reds fans have actually revealed their enjoyment over the possibility of Koulibaly and Van Dijk pairing in the main defence next term.
On the other hand, another area of the fans think that the offer stays impractical and Klopp ought to stick to Gomez as the protective partner for Van Dijk.
I joked about this prior to and I’m here for it.
Its excellent to have an elite protective collaboration. We have not had this in a long period of time.
Virgil and Koulibaly will be a pleasure to watch.

Or … How about signing somebody we need? Joe Gomez is 22 and currently a monster why would we invested a lot for a 28 years of ages defender we do not truly need. We need an assaulting midfielder, a back up POUND and Werner
