Some Liverpool fans have been providing their thoughts on former target Kalidou Koulibaly, following an update on his price tag.
The 29-year-old has arguably been one of the standout centre-backs in Europe in recent years, proving to be a formidable performer for Napoli.
The Senegalese star has been linked (Sport Witness) with a big-money move to Liverpool this season, but he has stayed put with the Serie A giants.
The defender’s current Napoli deal doesn’t expire until the summer of 2023, but it appears as though his age could be playing a part in him now being cheaper.
Koulibaly turns 30 this summer, like Virgil van Dijk, so it may be hard to envisage Jurgen Klopp seeing him as a long-term addition to his squad.
Liverpool fans react to Koulibaly udpate
A number of Liverpool supporters have taken to Twitter to react to the news, with the general consensus that Koulibaly is no longer a strong option to come in.
“That’s because he’s been awful for the past 2 seasons now“
“Do they throw the Zimmer Frame in for free!!”
“Old man for 43m”
“Is he that good anyway? If the option was available, I would pick Botman”
