Liverpool this season have shown how important a top-class defender can be in transforming a side and United will be hoping that Koulibaly can have a similar impact to Van Dijk at Anfield, even if he costs over £100m.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be consulted over United's targets and the club have not ruled out adding to their squad this month.
Koulibaly has always been linked with a move to the Premier League and he has been in good form for Napoli so far this season, making two assists in 21 Serie A games. Reports last month claimed that the 20-time English champions would launch a move for the Senegalese worldwide irrespective of who the manager of the club will be in the summer.
United would now need to smash the world-record fee for a defender if they want to sign him. Lawlor was reportedly impressed with Koulibaly as he featured in last Saturday's 0-0 draw at Fiorentina in the Serie A, as well as featuring in Napoli's 3-1 win over Zurich in the Europa League five days later.
