Liverpool fans on Twitter have been responding to the latest transfer rumour linking the club with a move for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.
This comes after Liverpool fan Twitter account @AnfieldEdition shared a post on their page relaying news originally published in a report by TuttoMercatoWeb.
The report claimed that Liverpool have targeted the centre-back and have already held “first contact” with the Serie A side over his signature.
The report also added that the 28-year-old is keen on a move and Napoli may have to shift him due to his wages if they fail to qualify for the Champions League.
This post then gathered a lot of replies from Liverpool fans who were eager to have their say on this latest development.
Here’s a sample of Liverpool fans responding to the post:

Do Liverpool need to sign Koulibaly this summer?
The 28-year-old is currently valued at £50.4 million according to Transfermarkt, making him the most valuable player at Napoli right now (per Transfermarkt). Now that it has been reported that Liverpool are interested in bringing the Senegal defender to Anfield this summer, this news did not go down too well with these Reds.
Absolute beast, but plays on the left like Virg.

Would be insane, but highly doubtful…Would only make sense if Trent shifts to MID, Joe shifts to RB and there’s a spot open at CB.

What do we think?
It seems as though these Liverpool fans like the 28-year-old but are not convinced their club will make a move for Koulibaly. Maybe this just highlights the confidence they have in their current crop of defenders at the club?
