Barcelona has emerged as a suitor for the Senegalese international, who won the Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year
In fact, reports in Italy have claimed that the Catalans have a strong, concrete interest in Koulibaly and the club could launch a move for him imminently.
Indeed Sky Sport (h/t SPORT) claims that Koulibaly will not continue at Napoli beyond the current season
As he does not wish to sign a new contract at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium
Considering that they could risk losing him for nothing next year, Napoli has decided to place their defensive mainstay on the market this summer
It further adds that Barcelona is the best place to secure the signing of the former Genk center-half in the summer.
Koulibaly has been linked with an exit from Napoli on several occasions in the past
But a move was always blocked by the outrageous financial demands of club president Aurelio De Laurentiis.
But considering that he will have only one year left on his contract, the Partenopei are likely to demand a sum of just €25-30 million to sell Koulibaly at the end of the season
Given that finances are tight and the club is prioritizing a move for Robert Lewandowski first
It remains to be seen if Barcelona is willing to spend close to €30 million to secure the signing of Koulibaly in the summer.
