Liverpool ‘planning player-plus-cash offer for Kalidou Koulibaly

Liverpool are reportedly willing to offer €60m (£53.48) and one of their players to persuade Napoli to cash in on defender Kalidou Koulibaly.
Reds boss Jurgen Klopp is rumoured to have already held personal talks with the Senegal international over a summer switch.

Koulibaly has been linked to numerous clubs during his six years at Napoli, but the Serie A outfit’s asking price of near €100m has often put off other teams.

However, Emanuele Cammaroto of Napoli Magazine has claimed that Liverpool have found a way around that issue by proposing a player-plus-cash offer.

Divock Origi is thought to be the player Klopp is prepared to part company with in order to soften a deal for Koulibaly, meaning that the Reds value him at more than £40m.

Liverpool’s domestic rivals Manchester City and Manchester United have also been tipped to move for Koulibaly.
