    La Gazzetta dello Sport says we're one of the clubs interested in Koulibaly. De Laurentiis has apparently lower his asking price to 50-60m and Barca considers including Umtiti in the deal.

    I'd do it for 20m+Umtiti+Firpo.

    Question is, would Napoli, Umtiti and Firpo do it?

    Napoli surely not, Umtiti seriously doubt as well, could see Firpo accept going to Napoli though.

    This would be bad transfer. He is too old and overrated.

    While CBs can play into their mid 30s, I think that for a transfer fee that Koulibaby's window has passed. De Laurentiis probably realises this too.

    He turns 30 this summer.

    I wouldn't sign him unless we can strike a deal that's too good to turn down.

    Some people say he's still great, others say he is declining.

    20m plus Firpo and umtiti is good deal.

    He's probably good until 34 and is a beast

    At least vs Barca he looked very suspect with the ball and already 30. Definitely a transfer we need to stay away from.

    Not really. Umtiti is of no value for us and we'd do great just to offload him and replace him with someone still able to perform on a higher level and while I like Firpo I doubt we'd get more than 10-15m if sold. So a total of 30m for a player who could still give us 3 good years until we find someone better I wouldn't mind.

    But as said no way Napoli would accept that offer.

    Sure if they take our garbage for him, of course.

    That's what I proposed in my initial post. And it's the only way I'd consider signing him.

    Koulibaly for 2-3 years is still more valuable than Umtiti and Firpo.

    100% he is going to leave, and most likely to LFC, unfortunately. We have got plenty of players to offer in exchange.

    a 30 yo defender is like a 27 yo striker/winger
