The Reds now have Joel Matip as their only senior centre-back, but according to Sports Mole, transfer expert Ian McGarry has claimed that Liverpool could have secured the services of Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly.

It is understood that Napoli were open to selling the African star, and both Liverpool and Manchester City were linked with the Senegal international.
