One of the main Everton shareholders, Farhad Moshiri, claims that his team went to Naples to ask for Kouli price, but the Italian team asked no less than 67 million euro.
Speaking to talkSPORT Monday, Moshiri explained how Everton went head to head with Chelsea after they had sold John Stones at Manchester City and had faced a similar situation with Manolo Gabbiadini.
“We tried to buy [Kalidou] Koulibaly from Napoli and they wanted 60 million pounds or 67 million euros,” Moshiri to talkSPORT, followed Telegraph.
“We competed with Chelsea for this trasnfer, we went up to the asking price and they did not want to sell the player.”
“Any defensive player in Europe now seems to cost £ 50 million even if it is 29 or 30 years,” concluded the Iranian agent.
