There are suggestions that Liverpool summer transfer interest in Italian Serie A outfit Napoli defender, Kalidou Koulibaly is almost a done deal.

This is after reports claim that the Serie A club are willing to take a reduction in the asking price of £100 million for the defender. According to the latest report, Napoli are now willing to accept within the region of £60- £70 million for the defender.

The 29-year-old has been tipped to form a great partnership with Liverpool defender Virgil Van Dijk who also came in on a big-money deal from English Premier League outfit Southampton in 2018. He has helped the Reds team to win the Champions League and now the premier League.

Liverpool will now take this chance to snap up the player to continue the challenge ahead of the coming season after manager Jurgen Klopp claims he expected clubs like Man United and Chelsea to challenge more for the title, especially now that they are engaging with a number of deals in the summer transfer window.

It is also reported that the Reds are hoping to have smooth talks with the player on personal terms to have a deal completed as soon as the summer transfer window is opened.
