Napoli beat down Kalidou Koulibaly price tag

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, who remains hot in the transfer market despite the Covid-19, has seen about 20 per cent drop in value as major leagues in Europe are prepping to resume football.

The 28-year-old Senegal international has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs including Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Newcastle, as well as French giants PSG.

However, an initial price tag of €100 million imposed by his club has been speculated to be exorbitant by sources close to the above clubs.

Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis told Gazzetta dello Sport that his team will henceforth listen to offers between €70 and €80 million for Koulibaly, who joined the Serie A side in 2014 for a fee around the margin of €7.2 million.

PSG sporting director Leonardo has indicated that Koulibaly is the ideal candidate to replace Brazilian defender Thiago Silva, who will officially depart the Paris-based club next month.
