Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly reportedly has his heart set on a move to the Premier League amid links with Manchester City.

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly is reportedly eyeing up a move to Manchester City amid persistent speculation regarding a potential switch to the Premier League.

The Senegal international has been tipped to make the move to the English top flight for the past few months, although City have reportedly reached an impasse in negotiations due to Napoli's valuation of Koulibaly.

A recent report suggested that bitter rivals Manchester United could attempt to steal a march in the race for the highly-rated defender, with City also said to be looking at Atletico Madrid's Jose Gimenez, having already brought in Nathan Ake from Bournemouth.

However, Italian outlet Corriere del Mezzogirono claims that Koulibaly wants to make a move to a high-profile club before it is too late, with the 29-year-old currently tied down to Napoli until 2023.

While negotiations between City and Napoli have already been dragged out for a while, the report also claims that talks could be further impacted as Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has tested positive for coronavirus.

Koulibaly has turned out 246 times for Napoli since arriving from Genk in 2014, notching up 10 goals in that time.
