Napoli to demand big money for Koulibaly

Napoli will demand a fee upwards of £53m for Chelsea target Kalidou Koulibaly, according to the Express.

The Premier League champions are on the lookout for a new centre-back and have identified the Senegal international as a potential target though the Serie A leaders won’t let him go on the cheap.

The twenty-six year old has been an ever present for the Naples side this season, scoring in two of their eight victories from eight so far.

Koulibaly moved to Napoli from Genk in the summer of 2014 and has since racked up one hundred and thirty appearances in all competitions, scoring five goals while he was named in the Serie A Team of the Year in 2016.

Internationally, he has been capped twenty-two times for Senegal and played for them three times at the Africa Cup of Nations back in January.

Chelsea were beaten by Crystal Palace on Saturday to leave them sitting in fifth place in the Premier League.
