£90 million Kouliably tipped to emulate Van Dijk amid Liverpool rumours
Ally McCoist believes Kalidou Koulibaly would automatically improve any team in the top flight, with Liverpool linked with a move.
Liverpool have one of the best sides in the game right now, as proven by the fact that they are current European and Premier league Champions, but there has been some talk in the media that move for Koulibaly could be made.
And McCoist has claimed the top Premier League clubs should be looking at Koulibaly’s signature, saying he can make an impact similar to the one Virgil van Dijk made when the Dutchman signed for Liverpool in 2018.
“The key signing for Liverpool was Van Dijk, and I think [that position] is so important for a number of top clubs,” the Rangers legend said on the talkSPORT Breakfast.
“In that I include Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, Man City definitely need to strengthen in the centre-back position and I also think Manchester United need to strengthen there.
“I think Harry Maguire has done fine, but there’s a question mark over Lindelof and you certainly need strength in depth.
“The name I keep going back to is the lad Koulibaly at Napoli, who has impressed for a long, long time now.
I don’t know whether there have been moves to try and get him out of Napoli, or whether he’s happy there, the big Senegalese defender.
“But I think he is the one target a lot of top Premier League clubs would and should be looking at.”
Liverpool are linked with a move and are a very tempting club for the man, so if he is on the market, we would not be surprised to see the Premier League Champions make a transfer move to partner him with Van Dijk
