Liverpool Moved in With an Offer to Sign $65million Star

Liverpool need to bolster their defense by signing a top quality center half and a left back in the summer transfer window.

The Reds conceded goals on regular basis in the last campaign and Klopp needs to sort out the back line before the start of the next season. The Merseysiders wanted to sign Virgil van Dijk but then ended their interest in luring the Dutch star (via LFC).

The Anfield club are looking at other options and as per recent reports, Napoli star Koulibaly is in the limelight.

Renowned Italian football journalist, Emanuele Giulianelli, covered an exclusive report for The Sport Review yesterday and claimed that Liverpool moved in with an offer worth 42 million euros to sign the Senegalese center half but the move was rejected by the Serie A side.

Jurgen Klopp DortmundThe 26-year-old star featured in 28 league games for the Italian club last season and scored 2 goals. He is arguably one of the best defenders in the Italian league.

His current deal with Napoli will expire in 2021 and it has a release clause (Football Italia) of 58 million euros ($65million) (Il Mattino via Liverpool Echo).

Giulianell further claimed that Liverpool are ready to offer the defender a deal that will make him earn £54,000-a-week ($18million in five years). In your opinion, is Koulibaly good enough to improve Klopp’s back line?

      COMON!!! Trash Lovren makes 100k for being a horrible defender, we are going to give his replacment that is a 2 0r 3 times the defender that Lovren is 55K ????

      LMFAO!!! make a serious bid FSG! 120K, 110k at the very least the same wage as Lovren of 100k and 65M for the release clause; Koulibaly is an even better defender than VVD now that Napoli saw we where willing to pay 70M for VVD along with ManCity and Chelsea, they wont hesitate to want the same.
