Manchester City is believed to be in a position to agree on a £65m deal for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly. Although the center-back at the Series A outfit is considered a key guy, a potential move to the Premier League is still being talked about.
Although City was recently linked to the Senegal International with a £72 m bid, Napoli ‘s president Aurelio De Laurentiis has insisted that he has no intention of allowing the player to leave for a cut-price fee.
However, according to The Mirror, city officials have been told that £65 m will be enough to get the 29-year-old into the Etihad Stadium.
Having witnessed his side losing the top-flight title from Liverpool, Pep Guardiola places a high-profile change to the backline as a priority.
In the race for signing Koulibaly, the city is thought to be ahead of the Merseyside giants.
