Tottenham have been long-term admirers of the £70 million-rated (Daily Express) Koulibaly, and are thought to be looking to sign a centre-back this season.
Spurs have had problems at the back throughout the campaign, with Jan Vertonghen and Toby Alderweireld both showings signs of age, and Davinson Sanchez out of favour at the moment.
Tottenham are now said to have stepped up their chase for Koulibaly, and they are prepared to pay big for him.
Spurs are reportedly happy to double Real Madrid’s offer for Koulibaly in a bid to ensure that he comes to North London.
Reports in Spain now claim that Tottenham are very close to finalising what would be a huge deal for them.
Tottenham fans will be cautious over getting too excited about the links though.
Doubling any rival club’s offer is a strategy which would be very out of character for Daniel Levy, who usually shops around for bargains.
There is no doubting that Koulibaly would be a massive signing for Spurs, as he is regarded as one of the very best centre-backs in the world.
