According to a report courtesy of Il Mattino via Sport Witness, Man City are leading the race for Napoli stalwart Kalidou Koulibaly – with the report going on to claim that ‘only’ the Sky Blues are really in pursuit of the 29-year-old. 

Koulibaly, who has started 16 Serie A games for his club this season, impressing with his 90% pass accuracy and 2.5 tackles per game on average according to WhoScored, is at the centre of heavy interest from the Sky Blues as we look to secure a defensive signing who can plug gaping holes at the back.

Flocking to the update, regardless of his reported fee, many City supporters have begged Txiki Begiristain to secure a move – going on to laud the ‘extraordinary’ ace on Twitter.
