Everton have made an offer for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, but reportedly need to double that figure to get the Senegal international.
Every summer he seems to be linked with the biggest clubs in Europe, including PSG, Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester United.
The asking price has dropped from the €120m of a few years ago, to €90m last season, and is now reported to be in the region of €60m.
Nonetheless, that is still a very long way off the bid that Rafa Benitez’s Everton made, as Calciomercato.com claim that proposal was only €35m plus performance-related bonuses.
That is nowhere near the figure that Napoli will even begin to consider for Koulibaly.
He just turned 30 and has a contract at the Stadio Diego Armando Maradona until June 2023.
Benitez was the manager to brought Koulibaly to Napoli from KRC Genk in 2014, but the centre-back arguably gave his best under Maurizio Sarri.
