Liverpool are reportedly leading the race to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, who could be sold by the Italian outfit in the summer.

Liverpool reportedly remain at the front of the queue for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

On Monday, it was claimed that the Merseyside giants were the favourites to secure a summer deal for RB Leipzig's Ibrahima Konate.

Should a £33m deal for the France Under-21s international go through, Jurgen Klopp is unlikely to consider any more additions in that area of the pitch.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Liverpool retain an interest in signing Koulibaly at a reduced asking price of between £42m and £51m.

While there have been times when the Senegal international has been valued at double that fee, Napoli are seemingly willing to cash in on the 29-year-old.

Much could depend on whether Liverpool push through a permanent deal for loanee Ozan Kabak, who can be signed for £18m from Schalke 04 later in 2021.
