Liverpool are proposing a €60m offer, plus a player for Kalidou Koulibaly, according to a Naples-based outlet.

The Italian media have been insistent that Jurgen Klopp is chasing the Senegal centre-back and earlier on Monday Corriere del Mezzogiorno claimed Napoli were ready to sell Koulibaly to the highest bidder this summer with Liverpool in pole position.

As per the article, Liverpool have already been in contact with Napoli to offer them €75m (£67million) to sign the centre-half, amid claims Klopp believes he would be a dream partner for Virgil van Dijk in the heart of the defence.

Sport Witness suggest the Italian press are simply trying to drum up interest in the player, but Napoli Magazine, has said Liverpool are proposing a €60m offer, plus a player for Koulibaly.

The player in question is believed to be bit-part striker Divock Origi.

The Belgium striker, who sealed the Reds’ Champions League glory last season, has not had too much game time this season under Klopp.
