Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly has refused to rule out a move to the Premier league next season, amid Chelsea interest
Antonio Conte has failed in an attempt to sign Senegalese International defender during the January transfer window. However, it’s believed that Chelsea boss remains a huge admirer of 25-year-old centre-back, who is valued at around £60m by Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis.
After changing formation to the 3-4-3 system means that Conte is eyeing further back-up at the defensive end.
After Thursday’s match, which ended in a 1-1 draw, when quizzed on his desire to make a move from the Serie A he said it would “make him happy” to play in Premier League.
‘It would make me happy to come and play here, but I now I have to go to Napoli,’ the Senegalese international told talkSPORT.
‘In the future you never know. Now I concentrate on my club and we will see next season what I have to do.
‘I think I will stay in Napoli but you never know. I can’t talk about it now. We will see.’
Koulibaly is fairly regarded as one of the best centre-half in Italy and could be an excellent buy for the league leaders. This season in Serie A he has won 35 tackles with a success rate of 59%, has made 42 interceptions, 89 clearances and 19 blocks.
