Barcelona wants to conclude a deal to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly, according to his former agent Bruno Satin.

Koulibaly played for Napoli in their midweek Champions League victory against Liverpool as he turned in another impressive performance this season.

The 27-year-old has been with the Partenopei since 2014 after joining from Genk and has played nine times under new manager Carlo Ancelotti this season.

But speaking to Radio Crc about his future, Satin said it could lie away from the Stadio San Paolo, with Barcelona reportedly showing an interest.

Satin said: “Barcelona saw him all Wednesday and saw how strong he is. He can play in any team, be it Barcelona, Real Madrid or Bayern. He has recently renewed his contract. We’re seeing that (Gerard) Pique is not going through a good period of form at Barcelona.

“Do Barcelona really like him? Yes, that’s for sure. We talked about it on Wednesday at the San Paolo, then there will be other factors that will have to evaluate. How much is Kalidou worth? He is strong and very fast. He learned so much from all the coaches he worked with. From those in Belgium, from Benitez, from Sarri.”
