Liverpool: Loads of fans believe Virgil van Dijk and Kalidou Koulibaly partnership would be unstoppable - Liverpool

Liverpool fans must be dreaming of having a world-class partner for Virgil van Dijk at centre-back, and they could have been watching the right man for the job on Wednesday night. Their 1-1 draw with Napoli gave fans a chance to take a closer look at 28-year-old Kalidou Koulibaly – and they were impressed, to say the least.

The 6 foot 3 Senegal international has played in 11 of Napoli’s 13 games this season in Serie A. According to WhoScored, he’s made the most clearances in the squad on average per game (three) and made the third-highest number of tackles per game on average (2.6). The site gave him a 7.31/10 rating for the game against Liverpool, and it’s no surprise he’s being linked with the likes of Barcelona.

Liverpool fans took to Twitter to suggest how incredible both him and Virgil van Dijk would be as a partnership at the back, and some were begging Jurgen Klopp to go out and sign him.

You can see some of their reactions to the possibility below:
