Kalidou Koulibaly will not sell for less than £ 100 million in January, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis told a radio host.
Koulibaly has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Premier League in recent seasons with Liverpool and Manchester United being the most mentioned, while Manchester City has also shown interest in the past.
However, as reported by talkSPORTAny side that wants to sign the center this month will need a lot of money.
Transfer fan Jim White told the radio station: “There’s not a window in the last two, three or four that we don’t see big mentions of Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.
“This morning, I spoke with Aurelio De Laurentiis, the owner of Napoli, and I told him what about his player, are there any offers for him? He laughed saying that he is not for sale. He is not for sale at all unless it is one of the big clubs in England contribute £ 100 million. “
After suffering an injury last season, Koulibaly started each of his team’s first 18 games this season before a muscle strain forced him out for four games recently.
His defensive partner is Nikola Maksimovic, a player Liverpool likes, according to De Laurentiis.
White added: “Then he says to me ‘I thought you were going to refer to our defender Nikola Maksimovic, the Serbian who is 29 years old, and Liverpool’s previous interest in him.’ So I said ‘Is Liverpool still interested in your defender? He interrupted to tell Gomez and Van Dijk of course with injury problems but no, they haven’t heard from them lately. “
Napoli are off to a good start to the season and are currently sixth in a congested Serie A table, nine points off leaders Milan with one game in hand.
