Arsenal ready to negotiate ambitious transfer deal for €80m-rated star

Arsenal are being linked with a big move.

Arsenal could reportedly be in contention for the transfer of Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

The Senegal international is one of the finest centre-backs in world football and looks an ambitious target for the Gunners, but Don Balon claim we could be ready to negotiate ‘hard’ for the deal.

The report explains that Koulibaly is also wanted by the likes of Manchester United and a previous Don Balon piece also suggested his asking price would likely be around €80million.

That seems a lot for us to be paying even at the best of times, and it would be quite a surprise if we were willing to fork out that kind of money while we deal with the likely financial damage caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Still, we do need a top defensive signing and Koulibaly is one of the best in the business. We surprised the world with our big-money move for Nicolas Pepe last summer, could we do the same again this year?

    Koulibaly has been coming to Arsenal since 2015.
    Along with Marco Reus Julian Draxler and Karim Benzema. Its one of the the oldest running joke on the site 🙂
    Actually the truth is that Koulibaly is coming to Arsenal when Roma pay 80mill for Mkhitarian 🙂

    Dreaming is allowed to everyone!

    Price are going down and crise may oblige Ñapoli to accept a payement plan they refused this winter.

    If they still after Torreira and Kolas, this will bring fee to 45M.

    This is the only way for us to keep Auba, show ambition.

    Looks like a swap Laca Partey is in effect, with Koulibaly too, Auba will extend for a year and see how it goes…

    Leno
    Bellerin Koulibaly Chambers Tierny
    Partey Willlock
    Ozil
    Pepe Auba Saka

    Many options in middle, this is just one as we have several to play with Koulibaly and upfront.

    This should be our team for a year now! Kroenke must bring club value up in order to sell highest possible price. keeping Auba and these 2 addition allows to do so
