5 names to replace Kalidou Koulibaly

Having said goodbye to Kalidou Koulibaly, Napoli has already set to work to find his replacement. A number of names have been mentioned in recent days, but there are five profiles highlighted in Giuntoli’s notebook: Acerbi, Kim Min-jae, Bailly, Lacroix and Palomino.

The former is in a break with the Lazio environment and could leave the capital for a sum close to 5 million euros. The South Korean from Fenerbahcece wants a change of scenery and to showcase himself in a more competitive league, but a number of Premier League clubs are also on his trail.

As for Bailly, the obstacle is the salary: United would let him leave for a not exaggerated amount but the center-back has no intention of lowering his salary. Lacroix is liked by half of Europe but if Napoli decides to sink the blow it would have a very good chance of signing him. Palomino’s situation is different: the experienced Atalanta center back is not in Gasperini’s plans but his age does not completely convince De Laurentiis.
