Man Utd chief scout Lawlor impressed by Koulibaly

Manchester United are scouting Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

He has been on the Red Devils' radar since Jose Mourinho was in charge, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer recently sent a scout to watch him in action, says the The Sun.

United scout Jim Lawlor flew out to Italy to get a closer look at the centre-back in Napoli's Serie A clash with Fiorentina, which finished 0-0.

Koulibaly played the entire 90 minutes of the fixture alongside Nikola Maksimovic and helped young keeper Alex Meret - who has recently ousted David Ospina between the sticks - keep a clean sheet.

And Lawlor had nothing but positive things to say about the defender's performance when he reported back to Solskjaer.
