Senegal and Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly’s agent says the centre back can become a dominant figure in the near future.

Bruno Satin believes his client has reached a good level, but believes he must work hard on improving his aerial strength.

Satin was speaking after the Italian Serie A giants failed to bag a win in their 0-0 draw against Fiorentina last weekend.

On the other hand, the Partenopei have failed to reach the UEFA Champions League Last 16, but will play RB Leipzig in the knockout stages of the Europa League.

“A player can always improve,” Satin told Radio Kiss Kiss.

“Kalidou has already reached a good level, but he can get stronger in the air to become even more dominant in future.

“There’s no need to be dramatic, as a slight drop in form and an increase in fatigue can happen over the course of a season.

“Admittedly, the Europa League draw with RB Leipzig is by no means a simple one.”

However, Koulibaly will hope to contribute as they want a win against Torino on Saturday, December 16.

Napoli occupy the second spot in the Serie A log with 39 points from 16 games.
