Kalidou Koulibaly is indeed a great defender, perfect to be a tandem Virgil Van Dijk in the heart of the Reds defense. However, their former player John Barnes advised the Marseyside team not to force themselves.
Liverpool have long been linked with the Senegalese player. Naturally, Kalidou Koulibaly himself performed brilliantly with Napoli. Many believe that he is the right tandem for Virgil Van Dijk at the heart of Liverpool’s defense.
Moreover, the fact is that many people also consider Koulibaly as one of the world’s best central defenders.
Liverpool itself has succeeded in ending the fast of the Premier league title by becoming champions this season. But that does not mean that they are also satisfied with the squad they have now.
Because of this, many players were linked to Jurgen Klopp’s troops, including Kalidou Koulibaly.
John Barnes acknowledged that the Senegalese defender would be a good signing for Liverpool. However, he suggested that the Marseyside team not be too pushy to realize this transfer, because the squad owned now is very good.
“Koulibaly is a very good player and if you see Joe Gomez, he can help him. Koulibaly is a ready-made player, so if Liverpool get it, then it will certainly be a good purchase, ”
“If Liverpool fail to get Koulibaly, this team is still 25 points better than the other teams, as long as they don’t lose players … I think there is no compelling reason to buy a top player. Barnes said to BonusCodeBets.
Not only that, John Barnes even considered that Liverpool should not have recruited Takumi Minamino last winter.
Yes, they bought Takumi Minamino and might have the power to add a number of new players that won’t jump right into the first team. But I don’t think that is needed too.” He said.
Liverpool managed to lock in the Premier League title this season with 7 matches remaining. The title was won thanks to Manchester City’s defeat at Chelsea headquarters. However, the Reds must continue to play the remaining 7 matches available.
