Manchester City have agreed personal terms with Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.
While they’ve swooped for Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake this month, City remain in the hunt for another centre-half signing.
The Sky Blues have been working with Koulibaly’s agent Fali Ramadani over negotiations with Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis regarding a fee for the Senegal international.
And Foot Mercato says personal terms between City and Koulibaly have now been settled.
With a contract agreed, City are now confident of finding an agreement with De Laurentiis over a price for the stopper. Their last offer – made via Ramadani – was for €63m, while De Laurentiis is willing to sell for €70m.
