All the latest transfer news
Amid rumors that the 2018/19 Premier League champions are chasing the defender, the 29-year-old is set to sign a contract extension with his current club.
Pep Guardiola’s side, Manchester United and Liverpool were three of the many clubs who were linked with a summer move for the Senegal international, who was valued at close to £90million before the coronavirus pandemic.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis was reportedly open to the idea of letting Koulibaly leave the club this summer and even lowered the player’s valuation to £70million to attract offers.
However, after seeing that none of the bids for the defender exceeded £55m, the Napoli-based billionaire is set to offer the center-back an improved contract that would keep him in Naples for the foreseeable future.
Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are set to miss out on transfer target Arkadiusz Milik who is closing in on signing a £175,000-a-week contract with Juventus.
Milik has less than a year remaining on his current deal with the Sao Paolo Stadium residents and has rebuffed offers of an improved contract from Gennaro Gattuso’s side.
His decision to not renew terms with Napoli caught the attention of Spurs who, according to Goal, are keen on bringing an old-school number nine to ease the scoring burden on Harry Kane. West Ham were also reportedly interested in the striker in their bid to acquire another big-money signing.
But with TuttoJuve now reporting that Juventus are closing in on a £23m deal for the forward, any chances of Milik moving to London in the summer transfer window look slim given that neither Spurs nor the Hammers are particularly keen on the idea of offering Milik a £175,000-a-week contract.
After playing for the likes of Liverpool, Manchester City, and Inter Milan in his career, the striker might be playing in the third division of Italian football next season.
Former Liverpool and Manchester City striker Mario Balotelli is in talks with Serie C side Como over a potential summer move to the club.
Como chief executive Michael Gandler confirmed to Football Italia in an interview that the player’s representatives sat with the club’s to discuss a future move.
The former Liverpool and Manchester City striker has seen his career nosedive since joining Serie A side Brescia on a three-year deal last season.
His poor performances for the side combined with his off-the-pitch antics have convinced Brescia to release the Italy international just a year into his 36-months deal.
