For a contract worth £65m Manchester City is set to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.
Although the center-back at the Series A outfit is considered a key guy, there is still talk about a potential move to the Premier League.
With a £72 m bid City has previously been linked to the Senegal International and Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis doesn’t want to let his player leave for a cut-price fee.
City officials have been informed that to get the 29-year-old into the Etihad Stadium £65 m could be enough according to The Mirror.
Pep Guardiola prioritizes a high-profile addition to the backline, having experienced his side losing Liverpool’s top-flight title.
City is thought to be ahead of the Merseyside giants in the race for signing Koulibaly.
