When two days ago reports broke that Arsenal are interested in signing high rated Napoli and Senegalese footballer Kalidou Koulibaly many paranoid Arsenal fans thought it was just one of those media reports that are to be expected at this period in the football world.
Alias, the report seem to be true as according to one of the most reliable journalist in the world Gianluca Di marzio, Arsenal set to make an offer of €26 million or £20 million for the highly rated and very versatile player.
With Arsenal in need of another centre back, signing Kalidou Koulibaly would make a lot of sense especially as there are very few centre backs of the quality of the African likely to be available in the €26 million range.
The signing of Kalidou Koulibaly will actually be a sort of double edge sword for us in that he can play left back, right back and centre back. He will be a good partner for Koscienly and when there is injury, he can play in other position. He was one of the best defenders in the Serie last season.
Considering Roma are unlikely to sell Manolas, signing Koulibaly will make a lot of sense. His signing will mean we will see less of Per Mertesacker and Gabriel next season as he is certainly not going to join us to be a benchwarmer.
