SC Freiburg's Robin Koch has attracted interest from SSC Napoli, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Apparently, the Italian Serie A side see Koch as a potential replacement for Kalidou Koulibaly, who could be on the move during the summer transfer market.


The 23-year-old has previously been linked with Benfica and RB Leipzig. According to reports, RB Leipzig were willing to pay €15 million for Koch in January, but Freiburg demanded €20 million for him.

Koch, who can play as a centre-back and in defensive midfield, is under contract with the Bundesliga side until 2021.
