Liverpool legend John Barnes believes that the Reds should have no problem in convincing Kalidou Koulibaly to make the switch to Anfield from Napoli.
With Jurgen Klopp trying to navigate a defensive injury crisis heading into the festive period, Koulibaly has been touted as a potential solution in the January transfer window.
Fellow Premier League giants Manchester City and Manchester United have also been credited with an interest in Koulibaly, but Barnes is confident that the 29-year-old would jump at the chance to join Liverpool and partner Virgil van Dijk in defence.
Speaking to BonusCodeBets, Barnes said: "If Koulibaly comes, he's a player that could play alongside Van Dijk when he returns so it would be easy to talk Koulibaly into joining Liverpool, unlike some other top players because he's a person that if he comes would go straight into the first team and play every match.
"Aside from Koulibaly, I don't think there's anyone out there that Liverpool would look to get in January."
Koulibaly has made 12 appearances for Napoli in the 2020-21 campaign and is under contract until the summer of 2023.
