Blues especially want to sign €65m-rated Senegal international
Chelsea keen on signing Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly and preparing to make an offer in July when the transfer window opens again. London club need a new high-class defender to strengthen the back-line and Senegal international is the perfect choice in this situation. He has an excellent campaign and proved his greatness one more time. Maurizio ready to pay big money for the footballer during this summer. Man United, Liverpool and Arsenal also interested to sign him and there will be a real battle for the player.
His price could increase and become much more. Senegalese centre-back joined the Little Donkeys from Genk in 2014 with a £7m deal. He is one of the best defenders in Serie A and unchanged figure for the club. In this season, the 27-year-old defender already played 31 matches and made 2 assists in all competition. This is an excellent result and he can do much more with high-class teammates.
Koulibaly is contracted with the Italian club until 2021 and his release clause is around €75m. He is a regular member of the national team and also played in the 2018 World Cup which is already a big success for the centre-back. Blues will do everything to add him as Gary Cahill already 33-year-old Andreas Christensen planning to leave the London club and their replacement is necessary. It will be very difficult to add him as Premier League clubs also preparing to make a bid during the transfer window. Chelsea also linked with Ajax defender Matthijs de Ligt and Real Madrid attacker Isco.
