According to a report from French outlet le10sport, Liverpool are in pole position to land Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly this summer – with Jurgen Klopp apparently ‘convinced‘ that Virgil van Dijk and the Senegalese international can form a devastating partnership.
Koulibaly, who has started 14 Serie A games for the club this season, is currently attracting interest from all over Europe as the €100 million (£87 million) colossus draws the Reds’ attention – with our club searching for more defensive back up.
Will Liverpool land Koulibaly?
Dejan Lovren has recently been linked with an Anfield exit, with reports suggesting that we are on the look out for any potential replacements.
Reacting to the news, some Liverpool fans had mixed opinions of excitement and utter disbelief – find all of their best comments down below.

Koulibaly, Aouar, and Werner and this will be the best Transfer market ever.

VVD & Koulibaly would be illegal but what would happen to Joe ? He’s been solid next to Virgil for the past 2 seasons

Realistically it wont happen..But what a backline we would have if it did..lots of games for all them to play without burning Virgil out if we had Kouilbaly
