Premier League side Manchester City are reportedly interested in the signing of Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly and the Citizens are ready to go for his signature.
Pep Guardiola and his men failed to retain their Premier League title at the just concluded season in which Liverpool were crowned champions.
The Citizens are now ready to bolster their squad so as for them to compete excellently in all competitions next season.
According to the report on UK Sun, Manchester City are ready to make an opening bid of £57 million plus bonuses with Napoli for the possibility of them signing the player.
Manchester United are also said to be interested in Koulibaly, but the Red Devils are not ready to pay Napoli's asking price.
Napoli are hoping the sale of Koulibaly can help recoup some of the club record £74 million spent on the signing of Lille striker Victor Osimhen.
Koulibaly has made 246 appearances over the course of a six-year spell at Napoli and he is rated as one of the best defenders in world football.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Chelsea are said to have initiated negotiations with Manchester City over the transfer of centre-defender John Stones this summer.
The former Everton player has fallen out of favour with his present manager Pep Guardiola and the Spaniard is ready to offload him.
Nathan Ake's arrival is another indication that the 26-year-old's time at the Etihad Stadium has come to an end.
Stones deal with City expires in 2022 after joining them from the Toffees in 2016 for a deal around €56 million. He has only featured in 24 games across competitions so far this campaign.
