Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur are maintaining regular contact with the entourage of Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, according to reports in Italy (via Mirror).
The robust and agile centre-back has been linked with both of these clubs in the past, as well as Arsenal and Manchester United. His future has been an object of speculation for years now, with Napoli presiden Aurelio De Laurentiis claiming for a long time that the player wasn’t for sale. He revealed he had rejected offers of over €100 million for Koulibaly’s services, but he never ruled out selling him at some point in the future.
Things haven’t been going too well for the Serie A side both on and off the pitch, with a number of players reportedly in a state of mutiny against the club hierarchy.
Chelsea may be looking to add an experienced centre-back to their ranks to help develop the likes of Fikayo Tomori and Kurt Zouma, while Spurs face potentially losing Jan Vertonghen soon, with the Belgian’s contract set to expire at the end of the season. One of the clubs interested is none other than Napoli, so some kind of a swap involving Koulibaly isn’t to be ruled out at the moment.
