Barcelona are reportedly looking towards the services of Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly to bolster their defensive department.

The 30-year-old has long been deemed to be one of the leading defenders in Europe and is said to have been on the radar of top clubs around Europe during his upward trajectory.

Clubs such as Manchester City, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain were some of the big name club’s that were linked to the African star in the last couple of years.

Koulibaly currently plies his trade for Serie A side Napoli and is contracted to the club until June 2023.

Now though, it is believed that Koulibaly is open to the idea of moving to Spain, with Barca said to be interested in his signature, as reported by Diaro Sport.

It’s also reported that Napoli have tried to renew Koulibaly’s deal with the club, which proved to be unsuccessful.

The report went on to mention that in order for the club to free up space for Koulibaly, Barcelona could look to offload the likes of Oscar Mingueza, Clement Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti.
