Lots of Liverpool fans are calling for a big January signing, after a report claimed Kalidou Koulibaly was one of Jürgen Klopp’s centre back targets.
According to reports, Napoli’s Koulibaly was one of a number of towering centre backs the Reds were eyeing up before he signed Virgil van Dijk.
The colossal Dutchman has been a revelation for Klopp’s Reds, but the report claims they were also looking at Koulibaly, Tottenham’s Davinson Sanchez, and Everton’s Michael Keane.
While Keane would have been an underwhelming signing, both Kouliably and Sanchez have hit superb form in the last 18 months, and fans are calling for a move for the Napoli ace.

Kouliably is 6 ft 3 in, fantastic with the ball at his feet, and has been an absolute brick wall in Naples, making over 120 Serie A appearances since his move from Genk in 2014.
Joe Gomez has been impressive so far this season, but a superstar like Kouliably would give Liverpool perhaps the best defence in the league, and fans are calling for a big money swoop.
Valued at £54m by Transfermarkt, the 29-cap superstar wouldn’t come cheap, but have a look at the Twitter reactions down below…
I hope we consider Koulibaly to partner him

I still want Koulibaly – alongside VVD they’d be a wall. But happy with where we are.
