English champions Liverpool are preparing to make a sensational cash plus player move for Napoli acs Kalidou Koulibaly.
The Senegalese ace has been tipped for a transfer in the summer amid competition from clubs across Europe.
Italian tabloid Tuttosport claims that the Reds have made an offer including cash and defender Dejan Lovren for Koulibaly.
The Reds are keen on strengthening their team following their end of a 30 year wait to win the League title. Koulibaly us viewed as the right man to partner Van Dirk in the defence.
The Reds believe that offering Lovren would make Napoli reduce their £90 million valuation of the defender.
Lovren has been unable to provide consistency at the Reds and is expected to leave in the summer.
A move to Italy could be what he needs to rejuvenate his career and he would be a decent replacement for Koulibaly.
Lovren has made just ten Premier League appearances for Liverpool this season and has a year remaining on his contract at Anfield
