Man City open Napoli talks for €95M Koulibaly

Manchester City have opened talks for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

Gazzetta dello Sport says City have intimated they're willing to pay €95m for the Senegal international.

However, the proposal falls short of Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis' €150m valuation.

City see Koulibaly as a potential replacement for former club captain Vincent Kompany, who has left to become player-manager of Anderlecht.

However, the Premier League champions will have to go higher to convince Napoli to part with their star centre-half.
