Barcelona are edging closer to securing the signature of Kalidou Koulibaly, according to SPORT via The Hard Tackle.

Barcelona are edging closer to securing the signature of Kalidou Koulibaly, according to SPORT via The Hard Tackle.

Xavi wants to shore up his defence before the start of the new season and has his eyes on Jules Kounde of Sevilla. However, it now appears Koulibaly is likely to arrive at the Camp Nou this summer.

The Senegalese has been rock-solid for Napoli since arriving in 2014. The 31-year-old has made 317 appearances for the Serie A giants, registering 14 goals and seven assists.

During his time in Italy, Koulibaly has established himself as one of the best defenders in the world, attracting attention from clubs around Europe. Napoli have managed to keep hold of him so far but could be willing to finally cash in on him this year.

Koulibaly’s contract with the Serie A side expires next summer, and he’s not interested in a new contract. Napoli could be forced to cash in on him to avoid losing him for free next year. His situation has alerted the Blaugrana, who are looking for a replacement for the ageing Gerard Pique. Clement Lenglet, Samuel Umtiti and Oscar Mingueza are all staring at uncertain futures as well.

Xavi wants to bring in Kounde to reinforce his backline, but Koulibaly has emerged as an alternative target. With Napoli looking to offload the player to a club outside Serie A, Barcelona could have a free run at the 31-year-old. The player is also willing to move to the Camp Nou and has become a priority for the Blaugrana
