Mixed reports on Liverpool and Koulibaly,

There are very different reports coming out of England on Liverpool interest in Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

Today’s edition of The Sun maintains that the Premier League champions are ‘confident’ of signing the Senegal international, whose price-tag has been set at €100m.

They would try to include Dejan Lovren as part of an exchange deal to lower the cost of the operation.

On the other hand, Sky Sports UK insist the Reds are not interested in making the purchase, as he is considered too expensive.

The Italian media has been very quiet lately on the potential for a Koulibaly sale, as Napoli do not believe anyone will come in with the right sum to tempt them into parting with the centre-back.

Manchester United, Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked, but do not consider Koulibaly to be a priority.
