Liverpool have been linked with a move for Kalidou Koulibaly in the last few days and Everton scout Carlo Jacomuzzi says it would be a disaster for other teams if he joined the Reds.

The Anfield outfit had the best defence in the Premier League last season and while Joel Matip performed extremely well, there has still been talk of Klopp needing to sign another world class defender.

Virgil van Dijk has proven to be the difference but if the German added the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly, it’s difficult to imagine Liverpool ever conceding again!

Jacomuzzi told Radio Marte, via AreaNapoli: “Manchester United is a pitfall these days. City? If Guardiola makes a decision, they buy. Napoli want €130m? In England, there are four teams who can pay that amount,” Jacomuzzi said.

“Liverpool? They’ve won so much from the Champions League, from the money from the federation and their sponsors that they can buy two Koulibalys.


“It would be a disaster for the others, having to find a way to go through that defence.”

Having a defence boasting the likes of van Dijk, Robertson, Koulibaly and Trent Alexander-Arnold that is protected by Fabinho would make Liverpool favourites to win the Premier League.

And that’s even before you get through to Alisson who won the Golden Glove in his first season in England.

It’s difficult to imagine Klopp or FSG paying €130m (£116m) on Koulibaly but if they did, wow, what a defence Liverpool would have.
