Kalidou Koulibaly transfer price set with Man Utd in ‘pole position’ over Liverpool.

Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly has regularly been linked with a move to the Premier League with Manchester United and Liverpool both believed to be keen on a transfer this SUMMER.

Napoli reportedly want £80m for Kalidou Koulibaly with Manchester United believed to be leading the chase for the defender.

Koulibaly has regularly been linked with a move to the Premier League with Liverpool also believed to be keen on the centre-back.

United registered their interest last summer with a €100m bid believed to have come from the Red Devils before Harry Maguire was signed.

And Italian outlet La Repubblica now report that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side are in ‘pole position’ to sign the defender this summer.

It’s claimed that talks between the clubs did not end last summer, but were instead ‘postponed for twelve months’ with Napoli wanting €90m (£80m).

Former Premier League ace Craig Burley believes United need Koulibaly more than runaway league leaders Liverpool.

“Look, is Koulibaly a great get for most clubs? Absolutely, fantastic centre-half,” Burley said. “But you’ve got to weigh up the pros and the cons.

“He’s going to be 29 this summer, in a month or so, there’s the financial situation in terms of getting the player in and their wages, and Man United’s need is more.

Man Utd transfer target Kalidou Koulibaly ‘makes Napoli future decision’
“They’ve got a good centre-half in Maguire and then they’ve got a couple of other centre-halves that I’m sure they would like to get rid of, and if they could bring a player in they would.

“Liverpool have [Joel] Matip, they have [Joe] Lovren and they have Joe Gomez, who is an excellent young player.

“None of them to the standard of Koulibaly but they’ve already got arguably the world’s greatest defender in Virgil van Dijk.

“So their need for another centre-half is not desperation.

“So they’ve got other places in the team they would need to look.

“I would be surprised if Liverpool went out and shelled big money on another centre-half when they can spend big money on other places in the team, for the reason that I explained.”

Liverpool target Adama Traore hailed as ‘edge of your seat star’ by Graeme Souness.

Liverpool have made Adama Traore a top transfer target in the summer with Jurgen Klopp a big fan but Wolves have slapped a hefty price tag on the winger

Liverpool have been told that Adama Traore would be an excellent signing by former player Graeme Souness.

The Wolves winger has been strongly linked with a transfer to Anfield in the summer.

He has been priced at £60m by the Molineux outfit and Jurgen Klopp is a big fan.

There could be some changes in personnel in the squad next year on Merseyside.

The likes of Adam Lallana and Nathaniel Clyne will see their contracts expire while Xherdam Shaqiri is keen to leave for first-team football.

Klopp has been interested since Traore’s star performance against Liverpool earlier in the season.

Adama Traore has been in fine form this season.

Timo Werner had ‘virtual meeting’ with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp
The German said at the time: “He is unplayable in moments, it’s unbelievable. What a player – it’s not only him but he’s so good.”

“Ruben Neves and Raul Jimenez would walk into anybody’s team, they are too good to be sitting on the bench anywhere in the Premier League, but the one that intrigues me is Traore,” Souness wrote.

“These players are like a jigsaw, there’s always a part missing.

“But Traore has improved and let’s hope he keeps improving because he gets you on the edge of your seat when in full flight.”

Traore has improved vastly this season after a number of years struggling in England.

Prior to his move to Wolves, the 24-year-old was lacking end product.

But under Nuno Espirito Santo, Traore has been a revelation.

Even Manchester City coach Pep Guardiola has been impressed against his side earlier this season.

“He is a motorcycle! It’s almost impossible [to stop him]. Nobody can handle this pace,” Guardiola said in December.

It came after he scored in a 3-2 win over City and caused havoc all match.
