Since Carlo Ancelotti took ovet at the club earlier this season, a number of players have been linked with a move to Goodison Park, and Koulibaly’s name as been an ever present in various media outlets.
In late March, Gazzetta dello Sport reported that the former Chelsea boss was extremely interested in bringing Koulibaly to the Merseyside club having worked with him during his time in charge of the Italian club.
