The central defender has been linked with Europe’s biggest clubs for a number of years and former Napoli and Everton boss Carlo even described Koulibaly as the best centre-back in the world two years ago.

During his time in Italy, the 30-year-old has made more than 200 Serie A appearances and also won 47 international caps for Senegal.

Koulibaly has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer and, according to Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, his current employers have set a £43million price tag.

Shortly after being appointed as Ancelotti’s successor in June, Rafa Benitez asked Everton’s hierarchy to reunite him with Koulibaly having worked with the former Genk man during his time in charge of Napoli.
