Tottenham Hotspur: Kalidou Koulibaly tipped for move as Napoli exodus nears

Tottenham Hotspur: Kalidou Koulibaly tipped for move as Napoli exodus nears -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Writing for football.london, journalist Matthew Gault has tipped Spurs to move for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly as a potential mass exodus from Napoli could happen in January – especially considering manager Gennaro Gattuso has reportedly fallen out with his players. 

Koulibaly, who was briefly linked with a switch to Spurs over the summer, is also hot on the radar of several top European clubs who wish to prise away one of the best centre-backs in Europe.

Koulibaly tipped for Spurs

The 29-year-old attracted heavy interest from Man City during the transfer window, but after long, drawn out negotiations – talks eventually broke down with the Sky Blues swooping for Ruben Dias instead.

Now, with a potential mass exodus on the cards at Napoli, Spurs have been tipped to take full advantage and snap up Koulibaly – coming after Sky Sports journalist Gianluca Di Marzio explained the great relationship between Daniel Levy and his representatives.

Transfer Tavern take

Described as a player ‘Mourinho would absolutely love‘, the 6 foot 5 machine has been a revelation in Serie A over these last few campaigns – averaging more tackles and interceptions per 90 last season than summer Tottenham target Milan Skriniar.

A truly ‘magnificent‘ defender, Levy would have to pay big money in order to bring him to north London – but his composure at the back ahead of a gruelling and congested second half of 2020/2021 could be well be worth every penny.

Averaging a 91% pass accuracy last season, Koulibaly could be the defensive linchpin Jose Mourinho desires if Spurs are to truly challenge for the Premier League.
