Everton target Serie A star with new owner’s £100m budget

By Mark Peters IN Archive,General - 19:50 Feb 29th 2016

Everton supporters finally received the news they had been waiting years to hear at the weekend, with Iranian businessman Farhad Moshiri agreeing to buy a 49.9% share in the club.

It has been widely-reported that up to £100m will be made available to spend on players this summer, so who might the Toffees be after?

KALIDOU KOULIBALY

According to calciomercato.com (article in Italian), the club are planning an ambitious raid for Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, a player with whom they have been linked in the past.

Having moved to Italy at the beginning of last season, the powerful centre-back enjoyed a solid debut campaign under Rafael Benitez, helping his side to keep seven clean sheets in 27 top-flight matches:

The 24-year-old has really stepped things up a gear following the Spaniard’s departure, however, helping title-chasing Napoli to keep nine clean sheets in 22 Serie A games this term.

To put things in context, opposing teams have taken an average of 112 minutes to score against defences containing Koulibaly in league matches this season, whilst the same figure for John Stones is just 61 minutes:
