There are some names that crop up again and again on the transfer merry go round, and there aren’t many players who have been mentioned more times in connection with more clubs than Kalidou Koulibaly over the years.
The Napoli defender has been connected to pretty much every team at the top of the Premier League since establishing himself in Serie A, and this summer he looks like he could finally make the move.
SportWitness say that the Italian club are ready to sell, and that €40m would get the deal done, and translate claims from the Gazzetta that Chelsea “tempt” the Senegal star, who would be joining up with his international teammate Edouard Mendy at Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are certainly in need of central defenders, having lost two of their first team options. Whether that’s enough to finally bring the big man to the Premier League remains to be seen.
