Liverpool target says he is bothered by link


Hardly will you find any Liverpool transfer news without talks of the club’s interest in Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly ahead of the summer transfer window.

It is claimed that Kalidou Koulibaly has an asking price of £90 million, but the fee would be beaten down on the negotiation table with Liverpool willing to pay £70 million.

Manager Jurgen Klopp seeks a partner for former Southampton defender, Virgil Van Dijk with commentators claiming that Kalidou Koulibaly will be perfect.

However, the latest report claims that the player is not willing to part ways with the Italian Serie A club any time soon.

He made it clear that he is 100% with Napoli and has not had any discussion of exit with the club hierarchy at any point.

Affirming that he has heard of the speculations linking him away from Naples, he claimed to be bothered because he is focused on helping his team.

According to Kalidou Koulibaly, he is happy at Napoli and will only leave if the club president refuses to renew his current contract.

Meanwhile, Kalidou Koulibaly still has over three years left in his contract with the Italian club, making a move away very unlikely.

The Reds team will be forced to stick with the squad available.
