Everton: Fans react to Kalidou Koulibaly transfer link

Everton: Fans react to Kalidou Koulibaly transfer link - Everton News

New Everton manager Rafael Benitez has requested the signing of Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly, according to 90Min.

The Spaniard has apparently told director of football Marcel Brands to make the 30-year-old the club’s primary centre-back target, with Yerry Mina’s potential departure creating a gap.

Napoli, who once slapped a near-£100m price tag on Koulibaly, are now open to bids in the region of £35m.

The report from 90Min added that any concerns over the defender’s wage demands have been eased by the departures of Joshua King, Theo Walcott, Yannick Bolasie and Muhamed Besic at the end of their Everton contracts.

The Toffees have alternatives in mind if a deal for Koulibaly cannot be struck, and former loanee Kurt Zouma is among them.

Koulibaly was named Serie A’s Defender of the Year for the 2018/19 season and has twice been voted the Senegalese Footballer of the Year (via Transfermarkt).
