Reports making the rounds claim that Chelsea are still interested in Napoli centre-back Kalidou koulibaly. Chelsea will reportedly make another attempt to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly next summer. However, Chelsea will not make a move for the Senegalese in January. According to reports, Chelsea will not make a £50 million move for the Senegal international in January as he will be at the Africa Cup of Nations.
According to Daniel Cutts of the Sun, Chelsea will not try to buy the Senegal international in January, and it’ll only take a monster offer to tempt Napoli into selling their prized defender.
Koulibaly will be involved in the African Cup of Nations in January, making it less likely for Chelsea to make a swoop in January, it seems.
John Terry’s contract ends during the summer, as well as Branislav Ivanovic, and Chelsea have been linked with many high-profile defenders already. The Blues were keen on signing Koulibaly during the summer, but Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis wasn’t interested in selling the 25-year-old.
