Spanish La Liga side Barcelona is in advanced talks with Senegal and Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly. According to a new report, the Barca central defense is seemingly in constant need of reinforcements, and signing Koulibaly would bolster the backline in significant ways.
Barcelona wants to Sign Kalidou Koulibaly
The Senegalese defender has been impressive and consistent for Napoli in Serie A and Barcelona got to see how he was viewed close up in their Europa League matchup.
Given that Xavi is keen on securing his contract it only makes sense that he would sign players that can help him secure his position in the club. The difficulty is that his deal doesn’t expire for another year which means Barca would need to cough out some money. Which, as we know, is difficult for the club at the moment.
AS reckon Napoli has pegged a €40 million price tag on the defender and won’t budge. Napoli is also said to be completely uninterested in any Barca players being included in the deal.
