Manchester City are reportedly prepared to include Nicolas Otamendi and Oleksandr Zinchenko in part-exchange for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

Manchester City are reportedly prepared to offload two players in order to help their bid to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

While earlier claims have suggested that City are willing to pay £72m for the Senegal international, it remains unclear whether that would be enough to tempt Napoli into a sale.

According to The Sun, that has resulted in City being happy to include Nicolas Otamendi and Oleksandr Zinchenko in any proposal.

Despite making 28 starts in all competitions this season, Otamendi has long been linked with a departure from the Etihad Stadium.

Although Zinchenko's versatility strengthens City squad-depth, the Ukraine international has made just 17 starts and four substitute outings since last August.

The report indicates that City, who face competition from Liverpool and Manchester United, would still be required to pay in the region of £65m to get a deal over the line.
