Tottenham and Everton are interested in signing Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, as reported by Italian journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.
Spurs are looking for defensive players in the market. Jan Vertonghen will reportedly leave the club on free terms, as Belgian’s contract will expire this summer.
The North London side has conceded 40 goals this season and a player like Koulibaly will be a strong addition to the club.
For the same reason Koulibaly is on Everton’s radar. Former Napoli coach Carlo Ancelotti is willing to use his past experience with the Senegalese international in order to convince him join Toffees.
“Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly could be one of their most important targets. There is a very good feeling between his agents and the Tottenham chairman.” Di Marzio told Sky Sports.
“I think Koulibaly will leave Napoli this summer. Only last summer, Napoli signed Kostas Manolas who is a similar player to Koulibaly and then they got another defender in, Amir Rrahmani from Verona.
“Napoli have been thinking to the future without Koulibaly. A couple of years ago, they would not have been open to the idea of Koulibaly leaving.
“But the last year was not his best for Napoli, so I think this could be the right moment for him to leave.
“As well as Tottenham, Carlo Ancelotti wants him at Everton. His agents have very strong contacts within the Premier League clubs.
“So, I think the percentage that Koulibaly could arrive in the Premier League is very high.”
