Many Everton fans have been left to hail a transfer update on Kalidou Koulibaly as talkSPORT have reported that Carlo Ancelotti wants to sign the Napoli ace.
As per the radio station, the Italian boss is likely to have the financial backing from the Goodison Park faithful in the summer window, and would like to sign Koulibaly in order to try and push them onto the next level, which would be qualification for the UEFA Champions League.
Should Everton sign Koulibaly?
The 29-year-old would certainly be a statement signing for the Merseyside club given his previous links to both Liverpool and Manchester United and his once £89m transfer fee, as talkSPORT reports.
Koulibaly has played under Ancelotti before, and so the latter will know how to get the best out of the big central defender, meaning that he should have little problems adapting to a different style of football.

“Imagine Godfrey and Koulibaly at the back .. we could defend on the halfway line …”
“We can hope. Superb player. You never know. Fingers and everything else crossed”
“Carlo building a spine to our team”
“Mate. Imagine it”
“He’s quality far better than “Bambi on ice fella” and if we get Europe we need a deep squad! 7 CB’s will do for me”
