Man Utd joined by Everton in Kalidou Koulibaly transfer race with Napoli cutting £89m price tag for in-demand defender

EVERTON have joined Manchester United in the race to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

Napoli are reportedly prepared to cut the hefty £89million price tag for Koulibaly.

According to Football Insider, Everton have set their sights on the Napoli defender and are ready to make an offer for him.

But the Toffees will face plenty of competition for the powerful centre-back if they are to sign him.

Manchester United are keen on Koulibaly and it appears Napoli are prepared to lower their asking price.

The Italians rejected a £95m offer from the Red Devils in 2018 but reportedly could consider a bid of around £39m this summer.

The pandemic has crippled the financial position of clubs across Europe and Napoli are set to accept a significantly lower offer for Koulibaly.


The 29-year-old Senegal star has made 31 appearances for Napoli this season.

But with Napoli in danger of missing out on Champions League qualification, the club may be forced to offload Koulibaly for a reduced price.

Bayern Munich have also been linked with the experienced defender and a major transfer race is expected this summer for Koulibaly.
