If Liverpool signs Kalidou Koulibaly this summer, according to former player Don Hutchison the title race is already over. 

There are rumors that Jurgen Klopp wants to make Kalidou Koulibaly his big summer signing.

That would put arguably two of the world’s best defenders in the same team.

According to former Liverpool star Don Hutchinson, this kind of acquisition would make his old side untouchable.

In an interview with ESPN FC, Hutchinson is convinced that Koulibaly is the perfect signing and it would all but guarantee Jurgen Klopp the title again.

He said:

“I think if Koulibaly comes through the door at Liverpool and he plays alongside Virgil van Dijk, I think you wrap the title up right there.”

“I don’t think there’s anyone better, there won’t be another partnership like it.”

“You wouldn’t want to play against Van Dijk or Koulibaly, how on earth as a striker do you even think about getting any joy out of those two?”

“I think if you’re going to win titles and you want to try and adapt, Liverpool have to be harder to beat.”

“You have to go into Europe and you have to have people like Koulibaly who can lead you in Europe.

“Koulibaly and Van Dijk, Andy Robertson and Trent Alexander-Arnold would be nigh-on impossible to break down, Alisson behind them.”

“It would just put fear, I would imagine, into every manager and every player that lines up against Liverpool.”

While given Liverpool’s current reputation, they will definitely seem an appealing option. However, a player of Koulibaly’s caliber has an abundance of options, of which none look too shabby.
