Manchester City have reportedly been offered the chance to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly for £60m this summer.
The 29-year-old has been frequently linked with a move away from Serie A after establishing himself as one of the world's leading centre-backs during his time in Naples.
City have supposedly struggled to agree a fee with Napoli for the Senegal international in recent weeks, but Napoli are believed to be determined to get a deal done as they pursue defensive options of their own.
According to The Mirror, Napoli are prepared to lower their asking price for Koulibaly from £72m down to £60m, and the player himself would favour a move to City over bitter rivals Manchester United.
Napoli have supposedly identified Lille's Gabriel Magalhaes as Koulibaly's replacement, but the Serie A side must sell before they can buy amid reports that Arsenal have agreed a deal for the Brazilian defender.
